Sa’ar says his new party will include minorities, possibly including Muslims

Gideon Sa’ar, leader of the right-wing “New Hope” party formed recently after he left the ruling Likud party, tells an Arab-Israeli television station that he intends to have members of minority goups join his party, possibly including Muslims.

“I have five more weeks until the slates are submitted, but we will include minorities in our Knesset slate, it’s important to me,” Sa’ar tells Hala TV.

Asked if he also means Muslims, Sa’ar answers: “Why not? The question is a question of values.”
