Isaac Herzog, Labour's new leader

On 24 Dec 2004, nine years ago when the two Labour/Avoda young stars Isaac Herzog and Ophir Pines-Paz came top of their Party’s primaries I despatched an immediate fax to them to which they responded politely but of course did nothing about it. If they followed my realistic assessment then one of them would have been our prime minister today heading a moderate government at peace with our neighbour the State of Palestine and ruling a country at peace with itself.
