Nazareth mayor disavows Joint List, asks Netanyahu to make peace

Nazareth Mayor Ali Salam, speaking alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, expresses disappointment with the predominantly Arab Joint List.

“We voted for them, [and] with all due respect, the Arab community is disappointed by them. They got our votes and did nothing.

“I am declaring from here, to the whole world, from Nazareth… it’s good for us [here] and we will continue to live together in our country and our request is that you don’t forget to make peace with the Palestinians,” he says to Netanyahu.
