Israel Political Parties: Israeli Communist Party

The Israeli Communist Party was established in 1922. The Communist Party contains both Jewish and Arab members and has an Anti-Zionist platform. From the outset, it advocated a Palestinian state as well as worker’s rights, women’s rights and equality among Israel’s citizens. Its constituency consists mainly of Israeli Arabs. The party also serves as a driving force behind Hadash.
