Left-wing commentator thinks Meretz and Labor should retire from Knesset

Now here's a most intriguing viewpoint of an apparent leftist, Moshe Mizrachi, who believes it's time for the Meretz and Labor parties to both bow out of the Knesset, and even regrets he voted for the former:
Full disclosure: I am unfortunately one of those who voted for Meretz in the most recent election.

There are only two left-wing parties in Israel that have remained: Labor - which founded the state and led it during difficult times; and Meretz, which has sparked the progress toward more human rights and civil liberties in Israel.

When the so-called "Change Government" was formed in 2021, I feared that the Left was willing to commit political suicide just so this patchwork coalition survive. Now that a year has passed, it has become clear how right I was, regrettably.

Labor, which was supposed to be the flagship part of the liberals and social activists, has failed to create a viable alternative to the Right ever since it lost power.
It's because all they cared about was political power. Something that should've been obvious for a long time.
Meretz - the party that was led by giants such as Yossi Sarid and Shulamit Alon - shrunk to a small interest group that seeks to bolster LGBT rights under former leader Nitzan Horowitz.
This anti-Israeli party certainly does take up some very lazy paths in their efforts to undermine society. But their support for the PLO is what they're really notorious for.
Perhaps it is best that both parties fade away, as both have dismal poll numbers that could leave them out of the Knesset. Prime Minister Yair Lapid knows better than both how to drive home the "Anyone But Netanyahu" message. The political vacuum created by both parties would hopefully be filled by a newly sprouted left-wing party that truly represents Arabs and Jews - a party that is not nationally driven and discrimination-free.
On the matter of Netanyahu, this is where the op-ed writer is pathetic. That's a very petty issue in itself, mainly because no clear reasons are given beyond that. But how amazing Mizrachi is comfortable with both Meretz/Labor fading out, even if he favors Yesh Atid in their stead. Maybe this does suggest what more than a few leftists in Israel are thinking now. So, we'll see where that goes in the future.

Update: but that said, as Lapid is now making clear, he supports the already insufferable "2-state solution" cliche:
Israel remains committed to a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Prime Minister Yair Lapid is expected to tell the United Nations General Assembly when he delivers his first ever address to that global body on Thursday morning.

[...] In his address, Lapid will explain that “separating from the Palestinians has to be part of the nation’s vision.”
Because he says so. This is just more virtue-signaling, and that's exactly why it'll be terrible if he's elected to lead the nation in November. All this propaganda does is lead to more embarrassment and division, to say nothing of serious danger.
