Leaders of the Arab community in Israel have demanded that an allocation of 20 percent of all international aid go to the Arab population. According to Army Radio, in a meeting with 40 diplomats and ambassadors, the Arab community leaders demanded from Europe and the United States to cease economic aid to Israel unless a portion of the aid did not specifically go to the Arab population. Furthermore, MK Ahmed Tibi (Hadash), requested international economic aid in order to build the first ever Arab university in Nazareth, as well as a state hospital for Arab residents in the Galilee. "Only in this way will the country give its Arab citizens the portion they deserve," said Tibi.
