Israel's George McGovern bites the dust. This article is mostly a puff piece, which is to be expected from Haaretz, but it gets to one very important issue: Mitzna's total detachment from reality. Here's a guy who led his party to the greatest electoral defeat in its history and he blames his resignation on party backstabbing. Well, it wasn't backstabbing that killed Mitzna, it was the total rejection of his defeatist message by the Israeli electorate. This guy wanted to renew negotiations with Arafat even after the United States had declared him irrelevant. The guy is living in a dovish dream world and he was about to drag his party even further into the abyss. Labor is still a mess, but at least now they have a chance of resurrecting themselves.
