Netanyahu's Israel

Netanyahu chooses to go to the polls, believing he holds a winning hand | Al Jazeera America:

They're not going to end the occupation
Even Netanyahu’s primary electoral asset — his promise of maintaining security and stability without ending the occupation of Palestinian territories — has depreciated with the recent turmoil in Jerusalem.
And it doesn't look like they're going to give the Palestinians any voice in the government.
That doesn’t mean they would be invited into government, since Arab representation in the governing coalition remains a taboo, even for Israel’s left-wing parties, despite the fact that Palestinian citizens of Israel account for one-fifth of the population.
One-fifth of the population of Israel doesn't really have a voice. The occupied territories don't have a voice. That's a nice little "Only Democracy in the Middle East" you have there.
