Labor Party Head Sets Out Prime Ministerial Ambitions at AIPAC


Israeli opposition leader and head of the left-wing Labor Party Isaac Herzog addressed delegates at AIPAC’s annual policy conference Sunday, and took the opportunity to promote his political vision for Israel.

After noting his own personal connection to AIPAC – his uncle and legendary Israeli diplomat Abba Eban helped found AIPAC during his tenure as Israel’s ambassador to Washington – Herzog made no secret of his ambitions to “bring Labor to lead the country” at the head of “a major center-left coalition” which would replace the current Likud-led government.
