Joint List proposes bills to create Arab city, university

The Joint List has proposed Knesset bills to create a new Arab city in the North and an Arab university, and remove bureaucratic difficulties for Arab citizens wishing to visit Arab countries.

These bills and others by the Joint List are meant to promote equality, according to the website of the Israeli Communist party – Maki, which is part of the Hadash party.

The legislation to establish an Arab institute of higher learning within an Arab community, submitted by Ta’al MKs Ahmad Tibi and Osama Sa’adi and Hadash MKs, argues that as Arabs must undergo instruction via the Hebrew language and they encounter difficulties with this, many go abroad for their studies.
