A group of Israeli Arab activists is currently working to establish a new political party very different from the existing ones: Instead of focusing almost exclusively on the Palestinian issue, its focus would be on bread-and-butter issues of concern to all Israeli Arabs: housing, employment, crime, etc. “[Current] Arab MKs are interested only in matters pertaining to the Palestinians and events in Arab countries,” one of the activists told Israel Hayom. “[They] are more often found outside the country than in the streets of Arab villages and cities in Israel, and it's time we changed that.”
