In the three decades that have passed since the signing of the the Oslo Accords, the Israeli left has shrunk considerably and finds itself in a state of paralysis. In a matter of ten years, Israeli right-wing politicians, backed by extra-parliamentary organizations, managed to redefine the Israeli left as traitorous, foreign and anti-Israeli. To understand the success of the smear campaign that drove the leftist political camp to the sidelines of the political game, it is time to discuss the role that the left itself has played in this process.
