Barak on the Labor Party

In an under noticed comment from Barak's speech today:

Barak slammed Labor members who he said "have been dragged to the Left, to post-modernism and post-Zionism."

So which of the Labor Party members are we talking about? I actually found this comment quite interesting. Barak is famous for his Ha'aretz interview a few years back (Probably a decade ago now) where he stated that were he a palestinian he would have joined a terror organization. And yet Barak is leaving Labor accusing them of some Post-Modernism and Post Zionism? I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what he was referring to with those comments. It is at least somewhat comforting that someone coming from the left still seems to think that "Post Modernism" and "Post-Zionism" are negative.

Update: Apparently I'm not the only one who was trying to figure out that comment. Labor (??) MK Einat Wilf just stated on Channel 10 " When I would suggest motions with the word "Zionist" in them, Labor Mk's refused to sign".
