The comeback of Ehud Barak into the political sphere seems to be moving from innocuous rumors to a firm possibility.
The former prime minister (Labor party), who most recently held the posts of defense minister and deputy prime minister in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s second government from 2009-2013, is slowly but surely turning himself back into a political player. His first appearance in this returning role was at last month’s Herzliya Conference, in which he criticized the current cabinet for falling prey to a victim mentality. He then urged the government to "take our destiny in our hands."
Notably, Barak also recently held meetings with Labor Knesset members and other political bodies.
