In Friday's Meqor Rishon, and maybe in Ma`ariv as well, Ben Dror Yemini wrote a short item in his weekly column about the meeting at the Knesset earlier in the week about this same issue. Yemini noted that almost nobody from "leftist" parties and movements was there.

Ben Dror Yemini expected the PEST (Progressive except for Sephardim and Temanim) to be there?

Sylvia, I am not a mind-reader, so I don't know what Yemini was thinking. But give him some credit. He probably foresaw what he saw at the meeting, as you did. But writing for an audience of average newspaper readers, he was trying to teach them something or explain to them, which is that the "left" and "progressives" cannot be trusted to follow their own ostensible principles when it comes to Jews from Arab countries. Which is the same thing that you were trying to say with your PEST anagram.

I can't find that article.

This is an item by Yemini, not a full article. See Meqor Rishon, 22 November 2013--Yoman section, p 14. This is Ben Dror Yemini's weekly column in which he takes up several topics. The item of interest is headed: "HaSmol Lo Higi`a" [השמאל לא הגיע].
