Liberman on Arab budget increase: Netanyahu is strengthening the extremists

Arab leaders lashed back at Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday after he expressed outrage at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to transfer a budget supplement of 900 million shekels to Arab municipalities.

Despite support for the deal among the top Arab leadership, Arab representatives told The Jerusalem Post they remain unhappy about the deal, with one saying a strike could still take place next month if Netanyahu does not offer anything new.

Netanyahu made the decision on Monday following a meeting with Joint List MKs led by Ayman Odeh and Sakhnin Mayor Mazen Ganaim, who heads the National Committee of Arab Heads of Municipal Authorities.
