Ten Out of Twelve

Consider this from an anti-Yesha writer:

In a way, B.D.S. leaders have played into the Netanyahu government’s hands, by blurring the Green Line for their own reasons, and by mounting a campaign against all Israeli entrepreneurs and scholars. Perhaps they assume that putting pressure on Israeli businesses, including banks, will force Israeli élites to effect a change in government policy. But this would be a mockery of the élite’s condition. Netanyahu’s right—which relies disproportionately on cloistered orthodox and less educated constituencies—has beaten the center-left tribunes in ten elections out of twelve since 1977.

And then ask yourselves if the democratic decisions of the Israeli public since 1977 has been pro- and anti-Yesha.
