In Israel Election, Palestinians Are Nowhere to be Found

In Israel Election, Palestinians Are Nowhere to be Found

Wednesday, 03 April 2019 03:37 AM EDT

JERUSALEM (AP) — In a charged election campaign that has been heavy on insults and short on substance, Israel's conflict with the Palestinians has been notably absent from the discourse.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ruling Likud Party has offered no plan for what many believe is the country's most existential problem. His main challenger speaks vaguely of "separation," while Netanyahu's hard-line partners speak openly of the once unthinkable idea of annexing all or parts of the West Bank. Talk of a Palestinian state, the international community's preferred solution for the past two decades, is non-existent.

The apparent lack of interest reflects widespread disillusionment in Israel over years of failed peace efforts. But it also is a testament to Netanyahu's success in sidelining the issue.
