Haim Hanegbi, a journalist in Tel-Aviv for the daily Maariv, is (2003) an activist in Gush Shalom. More recently (2005), he seems to have become what somebody has called a "Sharon Groupie".
His grandfather was a rabbi in the old pre-1929 Jewish community in Hebron. Haim Hanegbi was, with others, including including Akiva Orr and Oded Pilavsky, one of the original members of Matzpen.
In April 1999, Hanegbi participated in a demonstration opposite the Machpela Cave in Hebron, calling for the removal of Jewish settlers from Hebron and a halt to Jewish construction in the city. Hanegbi said that as one whose father grew up in Hebron (before the 1929 massacre), he identified with the Palestinians and not with provocateurs such as Rabbi Moshe Levinger, who settled in the city after the 1967 War.
He was a co-author of this widely-cited article on the class structure in Israel: Haim Hanegbi, Moshe Machover, and Akiva Orr, 'The Class Nature of Israel,' in New Left Review 65 (January - February, 1971).
