Netanyahu: 'Arab Voters are Coming Out in Droves'

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sounded alarm Tuesday over high voter turnout among Arabs in the country’s Knesset election, urging supporters to get their friends and families to vote for his Likud party. In a 28-second video in Hebrew posted on his Facebook page, Netanyahu said, "The right-wing government is in danger. Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls. Left-wing organizations are busing them out. Get out to vote, bring your friends and family, vote Likud in order to close the gap between us and ‘Labor.’” Based on polling averages gathered by Haaretz, the alliance of smaller Arab parties, or “Joint List,” is projected to be the third-largest group in the incoming Knesset, while the labor party, Zionist Union, is projected to come out on top.
