Posters bearing Yitzhak Rabin's 1992 campaign slogan "Israel is waiting for Rabin" were plastered across the country over the Rosh Hashana holiday. The posters were the work of the new grassroots National Left movement, which is expected to run as a party in the next election.

Movement founder Eldad Yaniv, a former bureau chief of Labor chairman Ehud Barak, said the posters were intended to remind the public of Rabin's values and the hopes that there were prior to his assassination nearly 15 years ago.

"The slogan expresses the need for the Leftist camp to return to Rabin's path of revolutions in education, health care, bridging economic gaps and dividing the land," Yaniv said. "This way, we can win support from Likud voters and win back the public's heart."
