Addressing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit with Bedouin leaders outside of Rahat, Sheikh Gideon Abu Sabit says that while he supports the Likud leader, “many workers under your jurisdiction have made our lives miserable.”
“Mr. Prime Minister, I am voting for Likud and we know that what is good for the state is good for us. But I hope you will take the affairs of the Bedouin into your hands because we are not enemies of the state,” he says.
Abu Sabit names Transportation Minister Miri Regev among those in Netanyahu’s party who have vilified Israeli Bedouin. He calls on the premier to prevent the demolition of homes in the sector.
