ISRAEL - Dec. 11 - Labour Sidelines 2 Doves.

Two veteran peace campaigners, Yossi Beilin and Yael Dayan, quit the Labour Party after a primary vote assigned them and other doves to virtually unelectable places on the list of candidates in the Jan. 28 elections. Beilin, the architect of interim peace accords with the PA, and Dayan, a women's advocate, decided to run on a joint list with the leftist Meretz Party. Haaretz quoted supporters of the former Labour leader Binyamin Ben-Eliezer as saying the marginalisation of Dayan and Beilin would improve chances of renewing the Likud-Labour alliance after the elections. Dayan, daughter of the late Israeli icon Moshe Dayan, said that Labour "looks more and more like some poor version of what the Likud had been". She ascribed her poor showing in the primary to her support of concessions to the PA.
