His supporters adorned Jerusalem's Old City with banners saying "Only Netanyahu will protect Jerusalem" and "Warning: 67 border ahead."

Netanyahu spurns peace. So do most other Israeli officials. They're in lockstep on major issues. Expected electoral results harden their resolve. Palestinians have have reason for despair. They have much to fear.

Haaretz columnist Amira Hass said "Palestinian ghettos were always the plan." It's longstanding.

Land theft is official policy. At issue is maximizing territory and minimizing Arabs. Palestinians have no say. They're victims of Israeli viciousness.

Ghettoization is Israel's aim. It's "been implemented for the past 65 years." It "concentrate(s) Palestinians in reserves." 

It robs them of land rightfully theirs. It forces them to accept Israeli policy or leave.

PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashwari sees peace "nowhere in sight."

"For Palestinians, Israeli elections signal deepening occupation," she said. 

Zionist parties promise continued occupation, colonial expansion, isolating East Jerusalem, entirely Judaizing it, "managing" military control, and spurning peace.

"This formula is a sure recipe for disaster for both Israelis and Palestinians."

Dominant Israeli party campaigns ignored what's done and planned. Fundamental Palestinian rights are spurned. Millions of victimized people suffer. Millions more live in exile. Their right of return is denied.

Israel's occupation "constitutes the main source of violence and instability in the region."

Israeli justice has no meaning except for privileged Jews. Arab citizens are marginalized and denied. "(I)nstitutionalized discrimination" harms them. "Incitement against Palestinians is on the rise."

"This culture of hate and exclusion is demonstrably evident throughout most of the Israeli electoral campaigns."
