Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, which used to be known as “Red Haifa,” was traditionally the bastion of Socialist Zionism and Labor Party strength. In the Knesset elections it went for Likud by more than 1000 votes. Haifa’s workers and laborers seemed pleased with the results. Said one worker, “Let’s try a change, after all Beigin is also a Jew.”
