 Israel: the shift in the Labour Party reflects growing class polarization
The Labour Party in Israel is becoming a classical social democratic party and reflects a move to the left on the part of the working class in Israel.
Carrying on from a trend that began in the 1980s, the 1990s in Israel were years of further privatization leading to a concentration of wealth in the hands of a few rich families while the number of those who became poor increased.
The changes in the Israeli Labour Party, from a junior partner in Sharon’s coalition to an opposition party raising social issues, is itself a reflection of this developing struggle and reveals the potential of the struggles to come.

 >>> AsiaNews.it <<< Peretz vs Peres: profound change in Israeli political scene
Tel Aviv (AsiaNews) - In the primaries for the leadership of Israel's Labour Party, which were held on Wednesday, 9 November, the winner is Amir Peretz, the Chairman of the General Confederation of Labour.
The Party, which was once upon a time the bearer of the noblest ideals of democratic socialism, already decades ago changed, in effect (like certain other parties of the left elsewere) into a representative of the better-off classes, and earned rejection and even hatred by the very workers it had once set out to represent.
In any case, the next general election in Israel will now be fought by three much more clearly defined formations: The reborn left, led by Labour and its candidate Peretz; the nationalist right, led by Likkud; the "centre", led by the "Shinui" party, which has today become the only unmistakable representative of the (non-religious) better-off.

 Peres ousted as Israeli Labour Party’s chief -DAWN - International; November 11, 2005
JERUSALEM, Nov 10: Shimon Peres was ousted as Israel’s Labour Party leader on Thursday in an upset victory for a trade union chief who vowed to end a ruling alliance with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and usher in early elections.
Peretz’s victory appeared to reflect support for his call for a return to centre-left Labour’s socialist roots and anger at Peres, 82, for failing to revive Israel’s once-dominant party after its crushing defeat in the 2003 general election.
But Labour, the party that founded the Jewish state in 1948 and later became the standard-bearer for peacemaking, is now weaker than ever as voters hardened by a five-year Palestinian uprising have abandoned it for Sharon’s tough military approach.
