Regarding "Ugly schism splits single moms' movement", Ha'Aretz, July 30, 2003: The single moms' 'movement' has joined a long line of Israeli movements that started out as legitimate and promising initiatives - often against the background of some political or socio-economic protest -, but failed because of infighting between their competitive composing parts. Vicky Knafo and her 'colleagues' have proven to be a truly Israeli phenomenon. Not only has their movement been made up of or joined by too many different interest groups, its members also have made it clear that their personal political causes and/or possible political careers are more important than the interests of those whom they claim to represent.
