Revolt of the supermodels against Netanyahu

In Israel, there is a new theme in the election campaign: "The Arabs", referring to those Palestinians living in Israel and 17.5 percent of the population. Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu had started the debate when he had responded on Instagram to a question of the Israeli models Rotem Sela. Sela had raised the question: "What is the Problem with Arabs? When the hell will someone tell this government to the Public, that Israel is a state of all its citizens? And that all are born equal? Even the Arabs, God save us, people!"

Surprisingly, the chef said the government personally: "dear Red, an important correction: Israel is not the state of all its citizens." He referred to the adopted in July, the nation-state law, which emphasizes the Jewish character of the state and the Arabic language as an official language is classified. "According to the nation-state law that we have adopted, is Israel the national state of the Jewish people, exclusively," wrote Netanyahu.

That Netanyahu picks up on this theme in the election campaign, is not new: In the last elections in 2015, he published a Video in which he warned that the Arab "hordes" flocked to the polls to oust him. He accused European States to Finance the buses. Later, the Prime Minister for his statements and apologized – what stopped him, though, to make a similar statement again two weeks ago: He was among the Arab Israelis, "herd behavior" at the ballot box.

referring to his nickname, Bibi, and the name of the famous Arab Knesset members Ahmed Tibi, he warns that, this time, it was a matter of "Bibi or Tibi" – so therefore, if he rule the country, or Arab leaders would move into the government. Even if the blue-and-white Alliance, such intentions in the agreement, the Likud further to this campaign slogan.

Tibi, who is competing with his party for renewal, for re-election and takes it with Humor: "so Far, I didn't know I was going to apply as a Prime Minister." Of the 120 deputies in the Knesset, 13 Arab Israelis.

Red, sister, you're an Inspiration for all of us," wrote Gadot, who has been on Instagram more than 28 million Followers. On criticism of Israel, the Prime did not yet.
