Hadash-Ta’al MK Aida Touma-Sliman appeals to Jewish voters to help save the party amid fears it won’t cross the election threshold.

Appearing to adopt the time-honored Israeli political “gevalt” strategy of crying impending doom, Touma-Sliman says that according to current voting percentages, her party won’t make it.

“Jewish partners,” she says in a Hebrew-language tweet. “According to the current rate of voting, Hadash-Ta’al is in real danger of not passing the threshold. For the first time in 74 years, there is a real chance that the clearest voice against the occupation and for Arab-Jewish partnership will disappear from the Knesset.”

“I implore you: don’t let the fascists win! Go vote for peace, equality and social justice,” she says.
