Mitzna resignes, Woo-hoo

The extreme leftist leader of the Israeli labour party (The Avodah) has resigned, making it safe for the labour to go back to it's normal left-of-centre self.
The labour party, a very well respected name in Israeli politics, home of great leaders like Ben-Gurion,Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan and Yitzhak Rabin has been dropping steadily. First they elected barak which completely screwed them over. Then they elected Mitzna which brought labour it's largest loss ever. Moderate voices among the labour, such as Fuad (Benjamin Ben-Eliezer) have been hushed and forced to follow Mitzna's extreme left ideologis which belong in Meretz and not in Avodah.
Mitzna rejected a unity government (something roughly 80% of the Israeli public has backed) and hopefully, now Sharon and Ben-Eliezer can return to a unity government which will help Israel out of the economic crisis and lay the way to peace. Now, with Mitzna out of the way. the secular unity government we've dreamed about (Likud, Labour, Shinui) can now act. Let's just hope the labour voters won't elect a mini-Mitzna to replace the guy.
