Arab Israeli MK Yousef Jabareen has called for Arabs in Israel to beat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by voting for the Joint List, Arabi21 reported yesterday.

He called on them to punish Israel’s longest serving prime minister by preventing him from continuing his reign in power.

Speaking to Al-Arab TV, Jabareen said that the Arab community in Israel “has an opportunity to achieve a big victory and let 16 Arabs become members of the Knesset.”

Jabareen said that the Arabs should punish Netanyahu for “his unfair policies against us”.

On 2 March, Israel is holding its third election in under a year after coalition governments failed to form following the two previous polls.

Recent reports have indicated that left-wing Jewish Israeli are planning to vote for the Arab dominated Joint List in the upcoming Israeli election and cast off centre leftist parties like Meretz and Labor.

Haaretz reported many Jewish voters saying they don’t feel leftist Israeli parties take a strong enough stance against the occupation.
