Arab League Members Call on Israeli Arabs to Vote


Members of the Arab League issued a call, Sunday, for Israeli Arabs to get out en masse and vote in Tuesday's Knesset election. The announcement read, "The Palestinians of 1948 must  get out and participate in the Israeli parliamentary elections to prevent attempts to enact laws intended to carry out ethnic cleansing against the Arabs."

The announcement expressed concern that at the end of the campaign, an extreme right-wing government would be formed that would give legitimacy to "ethnic cleansing and racism".
