Former OC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amiram Levine announced his support for Ami Ayalon for the chairmanship of the Labor Party, Israel Radio reported Wednesday. "It's clear that the current leadership is not getting the public backing, and what disturbs the citizens of Israel most is the shallowness, corruption, and greed that is prevalent in all those currently in power. Therefore it's important to support the entrance of modest people, such as Ami Ayalon, so as to improve Labor's chances of regaining control of the government," Levine said in a interview with Israel Radio. Earlier on Wednesday, Education Minister Yuli Tamir expressed her support for Defense Minister Amir Peretz to continue to lead the Labor party. "There are those who want to remove Peretz from Israeli politics, but the attacks against him are exaggerated and not appropriate," Tamir told Israel Radio. "Amir Peretz made mistakes, but we all make mistakes."
