As Likud slams Naftali Bennett for promising significant funds for Arab Israelis and canceling a law to increase enforcement of illegal construction in the Bedouin community, Channel 12 news reports that the Ra’am party is saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a promise yesterday to do just that. Likud is denying it.
The report says Netanyahu called Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas and said that the promises by the emerging government are not reliable.
“I believe in change, I want to do it with you,” Netanyahu said, according to Channel 12. “I am the only one who can open a new page with the Arab society.”
