Labor leader calls on Mansour Abbas to go with anti-Netanyahu bloc

Merav Michaeli, head of the left-wing Labor party, reacts to Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas’s speech by urging him to join forces with the anti-Netanyahu Knesset bloc to form a government.

“We needed a pandemic and a political meltdown so that after 28 years of incitement by Netanyahu and the right, it will become clear that the Arab public is part of Israeli society,” she says in a statement.

Michaeli calls on Abbas to “come with us so that together, we will be able to change reality.”
