A delegation of MKs from the Joint Arab List, the Knesset party which acts as an umbrella party for Israeli Arab MKs,arrived in Brussels Monday for a series of political meetings at the headquarters of the European Union (EU).

The move represents an unprecedented political activity on the part of the representatives of the Arab Israeli population in the international arena.

Arab List MKs Dr. Youssef Jabareen, Chairman of the Committee on International Relations, MK Masoud Jana'im, MK Jamal Zahalka and MK Aida Touma-Suleiman, will meet with senior EU representatives and representatives of the various parliamentary factions, as well as the foreign offices of Belgium and France. over the coming week.

The Joint List told Arutz Sheva: "The size and composition of the delegation and the senior echelons at the meetings are unprecedented in an attempt by the elected representatives of the Arab minority in Israel to turn to international elements to block the racist and anti-democratic legislation in the Knesset and the government's policy against the Arab population."
