MK Ahmed Tibi on Tuesday criticized the team appointed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to examine and propose solutions to social issues, saying that the team didn't include any Arab members.

"There are fourteen members of the group and there is not one Arab member," Tibi said. "Maybe there's an Arab driver, [or] someone who serves coffee." The absence of an Arab representative, he added, "says a lot about the prime minister's treatment of the troubles," Army Radio reported.
