When it comes to the occupation, it makes no difference which government is running the country. It continues, in any case. It continued under Rabin and it continued under Peres; it continued under Shamir and Begin and it continued under Netanyahu; it continued under Barak and it has continued under Bennett-Lapid. The occupation continues, regardless of the identity of the government, its electorate and those heading it. And it continues even when the government is ostensibly headed by someone who declares their desire for peace with the Palestinians, and even when the prime minister publicly declares that he will prevent a Palestinian state at all costs.
