Left-wing activists around the world want me to stay, she tells ‘Post’
Shaffir said she would do everything possible to unite Labor, Meretz, the Green Party and former prime minister Ehud Barak's allies by the January 15 deadline.
Labor seems to be at a crossroads at the moment, with rumors that Orly Levy-Abekasis may leave the union for Blue and White and that the party my unite with Meretz to create a larger left-wing bloc.
Lapid tells right-wing voters to trust Blue and White on security issues, says ’We won’t bring back Oslo, do another disengagement or stop fighting Iran.'
Shaffir finished second to Amir Peretz in the last Labor leadership race but then left the party and joined together with Meretz and former prime minister Ehud Barak to form the Democratic Union.
Shaffir suggested that the merged party be called the Israeli Democratic Party
Israel Democratic Union party released on Tuesday a program meant to place Israel on the cutting edge of the global effort to save the planet.
"Unfortunately, Blue and White recites the same defensive perception that Netanyahu offers, instead of telling the public what we all already know - that this road is leading us towards a disaster."
Shaffir reminded the US democrats in her new advertisement that "not all Israelis are Netanyahu."
