Peace Now's new director is a different kind of leftist – Nevo Ziv – Ynetnews/Jewish Business News 25/27.10.16
Avi Buskila has no intention of being a 'pet Mizrahi' for the left-wing NGO; in his first interview since taking over 6 months ago, he declares: 'I won't apologise for spending more time in the army than Bennett, or for being in the periphery longer than Miri Regev. I also won't apologise for thinking it's our turn to take the peace camp forward.'
