Disagreement over a rotation agreement is threatening to dismantle the Joint Arab List, which to date has been a monumental success story in Israeli politics.
The four Israeli Arab parties who comprise the joint list each issued their own statement, which the Druze community said did not reflect a real condemnation.
“No one, be they civilian leaders or citizens, will decide for the Israel Police whether or not to carry out a routine enforcement operation.”
Another demoted Balad leader is Jamal Zahalka who landed the fifth spot, which would only get him a seat should the Joint Arab List pick up between 18 and 20 mandates
Hear from MK Dr. Dov Khenin and social media analyst Orit Perlov on today's show. Yishai is joined in-studio by Khenin, a member of the communist Hadash party, which joined the Joint (Arab) List prior to the Knesset elections in March. Always in the opposition of the legislature, he nevertheless spearheads many interesting laws. He talks about his vision for Israel and the Middle East, with an emphasis on the future of the disappearing Dead Sea. Then, Yishai is joined by Perlov, who follows and analyzes the discourse on social media in Arab states. Why have Arab youth been silent in the past year? Do they have hope for a better future? And what do they think about Israel?
The day after police arrested four Eritrean and Sudanese men for robbing and raping a 19 year-old woman in south Tel Aviv’s Neve Sha’anan neighborhood, Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai said most African illegal immigrants should be rounded up and either deported or arrested.
