Arab Israelis and Palestinian Israelis already have the right to vote in Istaeli elections and to form political parties in Istaeli elections.

In a sense that's true, if you define Israeli Arabs as "the pre-1967-borders ones we decided to give citizenship". The problem's the ones in East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza. Israel's never going to give them citizenship, because together with their Israeli Arab brethren, they make up a majority of Israel's population.

Israel had a chance, with the Oslo accord, to rectify the situation by withdrawing to the 1967 lines. It continued to colonize the West Bank, and is now planning to annex non-contiguous pieces of it to get around the fact Jews are a minority, while still controlling it and Gaza militarily. It's profiting from extending this legal "ambiguity" indefinitely.

Also, Israel's Basic Law says that no party that denies Israel's status as a Jewish state (i.e. advocates majority rule) can compete in elections. So there's not much point in forming Arab parties, since they all have to endorse Zionism, and they keep getting banned in any event. Even when they are allowed to win seats, they're not allowed to take part in government.

"The Vancouver Schoolboard had given the go-ahead to a planned workshop for its teachers on the Israel/Palestine conflict. Somehow news is leaked to Israeli proxy groups in Canada. A day later and the event has been canceled at CIJA's behest."

And this interference will continue until Canadians demand the funding and sources of support for Apartheid Israel's ever more powerful  lobby are prohibited, criminalized and destroyed just like South Africa's was.

Do you really think Canadians are going to “prohibit,” “criminalize,” and “destroy” Jewish Canadian organizations?

Not all Jewish Canadian organizations are Zionist or support Israel's genocidal policies, so no.

So Canadians  might “prohibit,” “criminalize,” and “destroy” some Jewish Canadian organizations?

Israel is moving in a direction where Jewish Canadian support will reach a breaking point. I expect that this will happen before non-Jewish Canadians will push this very much.

Israel is in the hands of extremists and as it moves to greater extremes, it will become more and more difficult for Jewish Canadians to reconcile. Certainly there is support now but there are cracks and these cracks will widen. The wider Canadian community is not at breaking point yet either but we are apporaching that point.

As the hope, perhaps illusion, of a moderate, "democratic" Israel, a two state solution, and peace with neighbours fades, Canadians will find it more difficult to support what Israel has actually become. Zionism was always based on a two-state solution, in order to carve out a state of a single religious majority.

Netenyahu has decided to once and for all make a two state solution impossible. Given the demographics of the people who live in this extended state, he has blown up the essential myth of Israel. Israel was intended by many Jews to be a "democratic" Jewish state -- with all the contradiction that implies. Of course it cannot be at once democratic, Jewish and control territories with a majority of non-Jewish people. What Netenyahu has done by burying any residual hope for a two-state solution has firmly condemned Israel to abanoning any pretence at having a democracy and requiring the institution of an undeniable religious apartheid along with a new process of ethnic cleansing of more people than were living in 1940s Israel when it was created. The cloak of deniability has for years been the scraps of hope for a two state solution.

As such Netenyahu may have crushed the hope of Zionism for Zionists -- even if they do not know it yet. It is possible that within restricted borders Israel, may have eventually found a reluctant peace with a neighbouring Palestinian state. It is possible that within more restrictive borders, a Jewish majority could have been maintained for some time. But now, Israel has seized so much territory, that it cannot, short of a new round of ethnic cleansing, build a sustainable state there. Ultimately a one state solution is effectively the end of Israel. It is impossible to see Israel as Netenyahu is building it become either peaceful or sustainable as Jewish state. It may persevere for some time, even longer than Apartheid in South Africa,
