PM to meet heads of Arab local councils

Netanyahu invites Arab heads of local councils for a meeting at the Prime Minister’s Residence.

Likud sources hope the meeting will defuse tension created following Netanyahu’s comments on election day regarding what he warned was a high rate of voting in the Arab sector. According to the NRG news site, the prime minister hopes the meeting will also send a message to US President Barack Obama, who has been criticizing him for his comments over the past few days.
