October 2015
Tikkun;Fall2015, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p39
The article explains why Israeli elections will not end oppression and recognize equal rights for Palestinians in Palestine/Israel. It recalls that Labor governments have led most of Israel's wars against its neighbors, spearheaded settlement expansion in the West Bank, and led massacres and war crimes. It stresses the need for the world and the Israeli public to recognize Israel's apartheid regime and end it through boycott, divestment, sanctions (BDS), trade embargo and arms export ban.
