56% of Israeli-Arabs say Arab MKs do not represent them

Most Israeli Arabs think that the Joint List Knesset members do not properly represent them, according to a survey published by Channel 2.

According to the survey, which was completed by 350 people from the Arab sector alone, 56% believe that the Arab MKs do not represent them or represent them to a lesser extent.

On the other hand, 40% Israel's Arab citizenry feel that the Joint List MKs represent them quite considerably well.

When asked about the Joint List's condemnation of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States for labeling Hezbollah a terrorist organization, 56% said the move was not justified, compared with 19% who said that it was.

When asked about the three MKs of the Arab Joint List party who met with the family members of Arab terrorists, including terrorists who have murdered Israelis during the recent wave of attacks, most of the respondents claimed that the move was not a mistake.

Only 17% thought it was a mistake of the Knesset members to meet with the families and hold a moment of silence and prayer for the dead terrorists.

Regarding the sentiments of Israeli Arabs, the 2015 index for relations between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel revealed that no less than 57% of Arab citizens of Israel said they feel the radical Islamic Movement in Israel which is funded by Hamas faithfully represents them.
