MK Hilu: Wait for results of Bishara probe first

MK Nadia Hilu (Labor) said Wednesday, following the publication of allegations that Arab MK Azmi Bishara aided the enemy during last summer's war, that it was important to wait until the investigation against the Balad leader was finished. "I appeal to all residents of Israel, Arabs and Jews - we are in a crucial period," she said. "We can easily forget today that most of the Arabs in Israel are loyal citizens. At a difficult time like this, it's important to tighten Arab-Israeli cooperation and not to be swayed by words of incitement against the Arab community in the state."
