Minister Meir Cohen Calls for Arab MK's to Work in Interests of Their Constituency


Meir Cohen (Yesh Atid), the Minister of Welfare and Social Services, called upon Arab MKs to concern themselves less with the issues of the Palestinians and more with the needs of the Arab sector in Israel, according to a report in Haaretz. According to the report, the Minister met with the maors of Bedouin towns in south, the discussions focusing upon the security or the Bedouin settlements.

"The Arab MK's should be more active in promoting the interests of the non-Jewish sector they represent, and busying themselves less with the Palestinian problem," Cohen said.
