An organized protest against a routine visit to an Arab town by Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) has been launched Monday night, according to Channel 10, after the official people's board from all political factions in the city of Tamra distributed leaflets in Arabic calling for a demonstration during the event. 

Bennett was scheduled to visit the Abu Senin elementary school during Tuesday's Home Front Command (HFC) exercise involving war preparations and practice sirens. 

But the fliers insist Bennett is "racist" and should not be allowed in.

"We will not accept a visit by a racist person," the leaflets say. "Naftali Bennett, the constant inciter against our people who calls to murder Palestinians and to attack Gaza and the West Bank [sic] [PA- ed.] - is an unwelcome guest."

It also said that "the Zionist leadership, who danced on the blood of our people and proud of it, is not welcome to visit us."
