Racism in the right-wing government led by Benjamin Netanyahu has been spreading until it has reached the Knesset. Israeli minister of Foreign Affairs, Israel Katz, member of Likud, attacked the possibility in which the Joint Arab List may support tasking chairman of Blue – White party, Benny Gantz, with forming the next government. Katz told
“Makan” radio that “Arab MKs are terrorists wearing suits”.
Kats added “We heard Benny Gantz speaking about forming a minority government supported by the Joint Arab List. Such matter has not taken place even in the era of Rabin. They (members of the Joint Arab List) opposed the Arab League’s decision to recognize Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, they are terrorists wearing suits”.
