Former prime minister Ehud Barak said he thought he had a chance with Arab voters on Sunday morning.

"I have no problem with the Arab public, I did what was needed as prime minister," Barak said. "It ended with very painful things, so we must try to prevent those things from happening again, but I do not think that there is any resentment among Israeli Arabs."Barak is one of the "new" faces in the Israel's second elections within the year. Over the weekend, he started a new political party called the Israel Democratic Party. Barak had previously led the Labor party. While prime minister, Barak attempted to make headway with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by meeting with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and former president Bill Clinton at Camp David.
