Arab mayor to Rivlin: We can’t live with lack of respect and humiliation from Israel

Violence, unemployment, poverty, targeting by police, lack of adequate infrastructure, discrimination in allocations of government funding and price tag vandalism were only some of the grievances voiced on Thursday by mayors of some thirty Arab municipalities when they met with President Reuven Rivlin at his official residence.

The meeting was arranged by Mazen Ganaim, mayor of Sakhnin and chairman of the committee of Arab municipal authorities.  Ganaim and Rivlin go back a long way to the days when Rivlin chaired the Jerusalem Beitar Soccer team and Ganaim chaired the Sakhnin Soccer ream.
