Tibi fires back at Netanyahu

Joint (Arab) List candidate Ahmed Tibi says “Netanyahu is panicking, inciting against Arab voters who are fulfilling their natural and democratic right like any other citizen.”

“Netanyahu and Likud,” says Tibi, are “scared, and this is why I call on the Arab public to go out to vote in bigger numbers so that Bibi continue to panic. Change is afoot.”

Netanyahu later says the problem is not Arab voting on its own but the fact that massive funding from foreign government and other sources abroad is used to drive Israeli Arabs to polling stations and “thus distorts the true will of most Israeli voters in favor of the left.”
