Labor must wave the flag of peace and negotiations in the next election, party Secretary-General and MK Hilik Bar (Zionist Union) said Sunday.
“Over my dead body will we not have a peace plan in time for the next election,” Bar told The Jerusalem Post.
The MK bemoaned the lack of an emphasis on peace and diplomacy in his party’s last two election campaigns under Shelly Yacimovich and opposition leader Isaac Herzog.
“It is unacceptable that the party of [former prime minister] Yitzhak Rabin, who was murdered trying to bring peace,…hid the flag of peace for the last two elections. I will not allow this to happen,” he said.
