At long last, it appears the messiah has arrived, and he comes in the form of the Israeli Right. How do we know? Because it is succeeding in resurrecting the dead.

When the Oslo process met its death in 2000, it did not die alone, as the Israeli Left was left for dead at the same time. For a decade, the Left — embodied by Labor and Meretz — was on life support, teetering on the edge of catatonia. Make no mistake: Labor MKs may have warmed their chairs in the cabinet, but their leadership produced no ideas, no vision, no alternative.
