New-look La­bor leader vows to un­seat Ne­tanyahu in Is­rael

The Daily Star (Lebanon) - - FRONT PAGE - dai­­dle-East.ashx

Buoyed by a rags-to-riches per­sonal story and a cen­trist world­view that ap­peals to Is­rael’s tra­di­tional swing vot­ers, Avi Gab­bay has led the op­po­si­tion La­bor Party to a big bump in the polls. But the 50- year old for­mer tele­com ex­ec­u­tive has his sights set on more than just vic­tory at the bal­lot box: He wants to seek a peace agree­ment with the Pales­tini­ans – some­thing Ne­tanyahu rarely even men­tions any­more.
