Henin hails Hadash as largest left-wing movement

After apparently winning four seats in Tuesday's general election, Hadash MK Dov Henin on Wednesday hailed the party as the largest left-wing movement. "Following the unfortunate decline of the Left, the strengthening of Hadash, among both Jews and Arabs, is conspicuous," he said in a statement. "Hadash is currently the largest left-wing movement in Israel, and we therefore have a great responsibility to advance and build the new Left that Israel so dearly needs. A new Left that can offer an real alternative to power politics, Jewish-Arab segregation, cruel capitalism and deepening environmental injustice."
