Hadash these days is nothing more than a palestinian nationalism party, Meretz don't like orthodox jews & they do love arabs but they are primarily just a far left wing party and very few if any of the people who vote for them do so because they want some kind of equality. The idea of any equality party like this article promotes. Any kind of party like this would be lucky to exist for 10 years or if they got more than 1 seat. These kind of parties do not fit Israeli culture which is almost tribal: Orthodox jews, secular jews, arabs, non jews. Each side votes for their own. The seculars will mostly vote for mainstream parties and a small number will go for far left or far right, the orthodox like the religious parties, the arabs like the arab parties, the non jews like whoever will do most for them. Its not a traditional western country where we are all citizens religion & ethnicity are in a collection of groups who very often don't like each other very much. Also can any party with these equality ideals ever actually accept the idea of a jewish state or would they make one of their policies to turn Israel into a secular state for all and abandon the idea of a jewish state? Sounds to me what Hadash once were ... idealist & socialist parties just don't survive in politics today these days people are more concerned with real issues than idealism and whats fair or not. The idea of this equality party is an idealsists fantasy.
