  Hadash – Democratic Front for Peace and Equality
Hadash is a left wing Jewish-Arab party formed during the 8th Knesset when Rakah joined several non-parliamentary groups. Within Hadash, Rakah has maintained its independent status and was renamed Maki (Israeli Communist Party).

Hadash advocates complete Israeli withdrawal from all territories occupied in 1967 and evacuation of all Israeli settlements. It called for recognition of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel. It also calls for equal treatment of Israel’s Arab citizens and the right of return or compensation for Palestinian refugees.

Maki – Israeli Communist Party
Maki is a communist party and is part of the political alliance with Hadash.  It was originally called Rakah (New Communist List). Rakah was founded in 1965 due to disagreements within the original Israeli Communist Party, Maki. There was a split between a predominantly Jewish faction that was critical of the Soviet Union’s anti-Israeli stance and an Arab faction that became increasingly anti-Zionist. The pro-Palestinian faction left and formed Rakah.

Before the 1977 elections, Rakah joined some marginal left-wing and Arab parties to form Hadash. In 1989 Rakah changed its name back to Maki. It remains the leading force in Hadash today.
