The Left Camp of Israel ( , Mehaney Smol LeYisrael) was a left-wing political party in Israelmarker. It was also known as Sheli (Hebrew: של"י), an acronym for Peace for Israel (Hebrew: שלום לישראל, Shalom LeYisrael).

Background

The party was formed prior to the 1977 elections by the merger of Meri, Moked, the Independent Socialist Faction and some members of the Black Panthers. It won two seats in the elections, which were held on a rotation basis by five party members; Uri Avnery (previously an MK for Meri), Aryeh Eliav (an MK for the Independent Socialist Faction in the previous Knesset), Meir Pa'il (an ex-Moked MK), Saadia Marciano and Walid Haj Yahia.

On 11 November 1980, Marciano broke away from the party to form a single-member faction, later renamed Equality in Israel - Panthers. On 19 May 1981 he was joined by former Dash MK, Mordechai Elgrably. The new party was later renamed as the Unity Party.

The party failed to cross the election threshold in the 1981 election and subsequently disappeared, though many former party members joined the Progressive List for Peace.
