Could Ehud Barak's new party spell the end of the Labor party?

A former candidate for the Israeli Labor party defected to Ehud Barak's as yet unnamed new one:
The Labor party suffered its first defection to past leader Ehud Barak on Sunday, days after the former prime minister announced the establishment of a new political party to compete in the September elections.

Removing himself from the number 12 slot on Labor’s electoral slate, Yair (Yaya) Fink, former head of the community activist organization “Good Neighbor” and a former chief of staff to party veteran MK Shelly Yachimovich, announced that he would be joining Barak’s team because he believes that “we are in need of real leadership” that can mount a credible challenge to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I am joining a group I really believe in, both its leadership and the real mobilization it represents,” Fink said in a statement.

A prominent advocate for a softer nationalist stance within the religious-Zionist community, Fink said he believed that Barak’s new party was the place to “reclaim” Judaism for the left.

“The time has come to put an end to the exclusivity that the extreme right has taken for itself on national and Jewish issues,” Fink said. “No one has exclusivity over the Zionist ethos and the Jewish idea. My Judaism pursues peace… There is no contradiction between Jewish values ​​and democracy. Anyone who seeks to find a contradiction between the two in practice undermines the essence of the state and undermines the values ​​of Zionism.”
I think this honestly hints at their continued obsession with two-state solutions, and they think their "Judaism" is superior to the right's, ditto their "Zionism". But it's all just a smokescreen, one which the public will hopefully see through.
Announcing the formation of his new party on Wednesday, Barak, 77, immediately sent shudders through the ranks of both the ailing Labor party and the centrist Blue and White. Both are likely to see voters defecting to the former prime minister and IDF general who declared himself the only person capable of unseating Netanyahu.
An interesting question. Will they consider a man who's pretty old by now, and whose record was disastrous, worth voting for? And, will it lead to the demise of the Labor party in turn? Only time will tell, but seriously, Barak isn't worth voting for at all.

Mr. Ben Cohen of JNS dot org said:

“The answers were similarly emphatic when
the respondents were asked for their views on
Israel, which most Arabs still perceive
as a threat to their very existence,
even those living thousands of miles
to the west in Morocco and Libya
.”

NOTE: The distance between Israel
and Morocco is approximately 2,400 miles.

QUESTION: If this does not prove
that Arabs think irrationally about Israel,
then what would?
