Deri laments lack of Arabs, Mizrahim among Israel Prize winners

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri issues a statement lamenting that of the ten individuals who were chosen as Israel Prize winners on the eve of this year’s Independence Day, none of them were Arab or Jews of Middle Eastern or North African descent.

“The Israel Prize winners are deserving, but how can it be that not a single  Mizrahi or Arab was nominated for the prize in one of the many categories? Shame,” he says.
