Avraham Burg, the former speaker of the Knesset and Jewish Agency chairman, has officially joined the Jewish-Arab Communist faction Hadash, Channel 2 reported.

The network aired a clip of Burg giving a speech before the Hadash central committee in Nazareth on Saturday.

Burg has been an unabashed critic of Zionism since leaving politics after failing to win the Labor chairmanship in 2004. He is the son of Yosef Burg, a longtime government minister from the religious-Zionist National Religious Party, the forerunner to Bayit Yehudi.
