Hadash (the Hebrew acronym for Democratic Front for Peace and Equality) is an Israeli political front which was founded in 1977 when the Israeli Communist Party (Maki) joined forces with other left wing groups[1]. While Maki runs to the Knesset as part of Hadash rather then under its own list, it still retains separate structures within the front[1] and in reality dominates it, as 80 percent of the Hadash council are also members of Maki.[2] In the latest elections to the Knesset Hadash won four seats.[3]

Platform

Hadash seeks the formation of a Palestinian state[4], despite the fact that it is likely to pose a threat to Israel’s existence.[5] It also calls for a full Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights as well[4], even though such a move will put Israel in great strategic risk.[6]

Members of Knesset from Hadash are known for making statements against the United States and Israel and in favor of their enemies such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran.[7][8][9] Amir Makhoul, brother of former Hadash Knesset Member Issam Makhoul, was convicted on January 2011 of spying for Hezbollah.[10]

The social views of Hadash tend to be liberal, and its members have bullied Israeli opponents of the homosexual agenda.[11]
