Hamas's victory in the Palestinian elections would not change the Labor party's focus on social issues, Labor chairman Amir Peretz said at a press conference that focused on education policy on Sunday in Tel Aviv. "The Hamas victory will not change the difficult problems faced by Israeli society," Peretz declared. "It will not change the number of children in Israeli classrooms, and we will not allow the new political situation to serve as an excuse for ignoring social issues."
