Lapid uses wave of violence to craft his party’s centrist ideology

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid visited the Derech Avot High School in Efrat Sunday to speak to students about the lessons of the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin 20 years ago.

Lapid spoke to the students about the need to listen to those with different beliefs and to accept that no sector in society will achieve all its goals. The visit also enabled him to be photographed visiting Gush Etzion and showing solidarity with its residents under fire shortly after a terrorist attack in the region.

The visit was seen as part of an effort by Lapid to use the current wave of Arab violence to help him create and present the centrist ideology that he believes a majority of citizens share and could help him in the next election.
