The majority of people in Israel are moderates. Men and women all across the country, in all sectors and of every opinion, open the newspaper and visit news sites every morning and recognize that if we continue along this path, we will not find peace. People see the divisions, the extremism, and the hatred, and they realize that they can no longer continue on in silence. They can see that behind the differences, we are one people—and ours is a shared future.
We understand that we cannot continue to shut our eyes and think that everything will work out in the end. We must work together—moderates from across the social and political spectrum—to bring about the change we need. It may sound cliché, but it’s true. All around us, we see the racism and extremism that is poisoning our society, leaving us divided and bickering; if we don’t get organized and join together, if we don’t take action, we will lose everything.
We are the moderate majority, and we are waking up.
Now, we have arrived at the time where we must act.
We are the people we have been waiting for.
