New Communist List (Rakach)

Description:

Rakah was established formed in 1965 when the Israel Communist Party (Maki) split. Most of the Jewish members of the Communist Party remained in Maki, while most of the Arab members and a few Jewish members, including MK Meir Vilner, joined the new party, that viewed the Zionist Movement as a nationalistic middle-class movement serving imperialist interests, and the Six Day War as an act of Israeli aggression. Rakah ran independently for the Sixth to Eighth Knessets. In the Ninth to Twlefth Knessets it ran within the framework of the Hadash list. In 1989, Rakah changed its name back to Maki.
