Orlev: Arab MKs Responsible for Negative Stereotypes
(IsraelNN.com) The Knesset’s Education Committee met Monday to discuss the results of a survey conducted among Jewish high school students in Israel. According to the survey, the majority of the students believe that Arabs are ignorant and uncultured.
NU/NRP Chairman Zevulun Orlev said that the stereotypes revealed in the survey were a direct result of the behavior of Arab members of Knesset. The students learned about Arabs from the media, Orlev said, and there they see Arab MKs threatening Israel and siding with the county’s enemies.
