PA daily op-ed calls on Israeli Arabs to vote

Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

“The vote of each Arab will defeat the vote of a right-wing Israeli. You, the Palestinians, with your gathering under the alignment of the Joint [Arab] List… you are the decisive statement; you are the last word…

You will hear the voice of fear of you from [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu. You have heard him in the past: ‘The Arabs are flocking [to the polling stations], the Palestinians are flocking.’ How nice this statement is, how pleasant its musical ring is. The Arabs are flocking, the Arabs exist, the Arabs are active, the Arabs are present.”
