Members of the Joint List have criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the campaign that he has mounted against a minority government that enjoys the support of Arab MKs.

 Joint List officials accused Netanyahu of “incitement that has produced dozens of death threats against our members.” The Joint List demanded that President Reuven Rivlin and Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit publicly condemn Netanyahu’s statements.

Netanyahu called Joint List MKs "supporters of terrorism" who seek to "destroy Israel."

The comments were condemned by Blue and White leader Benny Gantz.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Dr  Thabet Abu Rass, co-director of the pro-coexistence Abraham Initiatives.
