1malaysia tiru 1israel

One Israel (Hebrew: ישראל אחת‎, Yisrael Ahat) was an alliance of the Israeli Labour Party, Meimad and Gesher created to run for the 1999 Knesset elections.

One Israel was formed by Labour Party leader Ehud Barak in the run up to the 1999 elections with the aim of making the Labour Party appear more centrist and to reduce its secularist and elitist reputation amongst Mizrahi voters (Gesher was led by prominent Mizrahi politician and former Likud MK David Levy whilst Meimad is a religious party) modelled on Tony Blair's transformation of the British Labour Party into New Labour.
