 Yossi Beilin: Peres' "Poodle," Is a Central Figure in the Peace Process
Beilin, the former academic and journalist, and Netanyahu, a military officer and businessman, are in many ways a study in contrasts.
Beilin also played an important behind the-scenes role in 1987, during the period of the "national unity government." He served as an aide to then-Foreign Minister Peres, who was trying to open peace talks with Jordan's King Hussein.
Interestingly, the main conclusion of Beilin's doctoral dissertation, which focused on Israeli foreign policy between 1967 and 1973, was that Israel's determination to maintain the territorial status quo in those years caused it to miss important opportunities for peace with the Arabs, and led to the 1973 war.

 Yossi Beilin, 2004 model - without the tie - Haaretz - Israel News   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Beilin, who as a freelancer in the political field never experienced economic deprivation, whose every want and need was supplied with a generous hand by European governments and institutions, will have to dirty his hands with partisan deal making of the less genteel sort.
For instance, Beilin is planning to appeal to the Israeli public, primarily to partymembers and its potential voters, and ask each household to contribute NIS 900 to the empty coffers of Yahad - the maximum permitted by law.
Beilin estimates he will be able to strengthen Yahad and to bring in additional Knesset seats, which would come primarily from those leftists who have not cast ballots in the past few elections.

Yossi Beilin - a shrewd political scientist - during the last Israeli election season received too low a position during the internal Labor primary to be realistically elected to the Knesset - Israel's parliament - so he moved to the further-left Meretz Party.

Beilin, formerly of the Labor Party, was the architect of the ill-fated Oslo Agreement in 1993 under the tutelage of Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres.

Yossi, last week you published an opinion article on this page defending the legacy of Jimmy Carter and his book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” (“Carter Is No More Critical of Israel Than Israelis Themselves”).
More troubling still, Yossi, is your disregarding the encouragement Carter’s book may give to the hate groups that populate the landscape in America and patiently await their opportunity to marginalize the Jewish community here.
But Yossi, what pains me most is that you seem to have chosen to ignore Carter’s attack on your own credibility.
