Jerusalem’s Arabs Support Arieh King

The pro-Israel activist is courting the Arab vote for a Jerusalem city council seat - and he may get it.

Even as the Channel 2 Television Authority refused to run Arieh King’s political commercial, in which he stated he wants to block Jerusalem’s “moazins” from blasting prayers over the loudspeakers at all hours, King ran a parlor meeting in the home of Awaida Yunis in the neighborhood of Wadi Kadum in Jerusalem, according to a report in Makor Rishon.

King, a well known pro-Israel activist, is running for Jerusalem city council in the upcoming elections, representing Jerusalem’s ¬†periphery neighborhoods, including the one he lives in.

But while other candidates for mayor and city council have been meeting with various rabbis, King has been busy meeting the Muchtars (clan leaders) of the various Arab neighborhoods.

Yunis who hosted the parlor meeting said that while he doesn’t support all of King’s political agendas, this election is about services, and he want eastern Jerusalem to receive the same quality of services that the west side of town receives.

Yunis said that his neighborhood of 1500 Arabs will all go out to vote for King, whom they believe will work to clean up their neighborhoods, and improve municipal services.

King said that most of the Jerusalem’s Arabs want to remain under Israeli sovreignity, and that his party “United Jerusalem” will fight to make sure it stays that way.

King added that he has been working for years with his Arab neighbors to improve the cleanliness of the streets and increase local security.

King promised his listeners that he will work to build more parks and schools in the Arab neighborhoods.

  5. Good for him! There are many Israeli Arabs who prefer to see an Israeli State. They are usually too scared to voice it.

  7. If Abbas and his terrorists could be removed or repatriated I am certain Israeli Arabs would rather owe their allegiance to Israel. Israel is a democracy with a functioning economy, respect within International Banking, a fully trained and properly run defense Services, good health services and Drs both Arab Israeli and Israeli, a functioning law system, infrastructure etc etc. What on earth is Abbas and his cronies offering?

  11. Welcome Wahid, I don't live in Israel but if I were an Arab I'd rather live in Israel than under Sharia Law. My wife would be treated with respect my children have access to health and education. G-d Bless you <3
