The Arab League on Sunday called for Israeli Arabs to vote so that they can prevent a right wing government "that will promote racist laws and ethnic cleansing."
Israeli Arab voter turnout was expected to drop lower than 50 percent according to a report by the Israeli paper Maariv
last week. The Cairo-based Arab League said it is following the Israeli elections, which show that the right wing extremists "want a Jewish state under the banner of the Arab threat to the the land of Israel," according to a report by the Egyptian paper Al-Masry al-Youm
Israeli Arabs make up at least 20% of the population of Israel and can be part of a strong opposition in the Knesset, the Arab League added.
