Israeli Arab lawmakers could quit the Knesset en masse to protest Israel’s “harmful actions” against Al-Aksa Mosque, an Arab parliamentarian warned on Friday.

Talab Abu Arar of the Ra’am – United Arab List faction told dozens of people attending a rally in the Beduin town of Rahat on Friday that “if the harm done to Al-Aksa continues, and in the event that the Netanyahu government doesn’t preserve the status quo, I will recommend to the members of the Arab factions to quit the Knesset.”
