The Abraham Fund Initiatives called on Prime Minister Netanyahu at the end of last week to invite the Arab parties to join the government.

Arab citizens of Israel would like to see their representatives integrated into the decision-making process, according to a statement published by the organization titled, “The Abraham Fund Initiatives to Netanyahu: Invite Arab politicians to join the government.” The Fund works to improve the integration and equality of Arab citizens of Israel.

The co-executive directors of the Fund in Israel, Amnon Beeri-Sulitzeanu and Mohammad Darawshe, stated that the invitation of the Arab parties to join the coalition has a value in itself because it conveys a positive message and encourages Arab citizens. A meeting between Netanyahu and Arab leaders would allow them to place important Arab issues on the agenda of the new government.
