2021 Elections: The Likud is preparing an extensive campaign for the Arab sector

After the visit of the Prime Minister and Chairman of the Likud on Tuesday Benjamin NetanyahuIn the city of Nazareth, the Likud is preparing an extensive campaign aimed at the Arab sector. According to internal polls conducted by the party, the Likud’s potential on the Arab street is approaching 2 seats – about 60,000 voters.

Sources in the party even explain that the goal set is twofold: “Every vote of an Arab voter will go to us – is also a vote that will not go to the opposing camp, which we will take from the bloc ‘only not Bibi’. So the profit may be doubled – if and when we succeed in the task.”

As part of the campaign in the Arab sector, the Likud will attack the members of the joint list and present them as failed politicians who do not help their voters. Starting next month, after the submission of the lists, an Likud outdoor campaign in Arabic is expected to take place. In addition, Netanyahu will visit other Arab localities in the run-up to Election Day.

The Likud responded yesterday to attacks that Netanyahu intends to form a government with the support of the joint list or its parts. According to the Likud statement, “We will not form a government with Mansour Abbas or the joint list and we will not rely on them, after opposing the peace agreements that bring Jews and Arabs closer. Arab citizens of Israel support the Likud led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Speak for them.

The recordings published last night on News 12 document four hours of tense and loud conversation between Netanyahu and representatives of the Shulmanim Independent Organization, during which the prime minister tried to persuade them not to form an independent party or to join Bennett or other parties. Netanyahu explained to the participants that any joining or supporting another party could not be conceivable if they wanted to pass economic reforms. According to him, his bloc is the Likud, the ultra-Orthodox parties and the National Union led by Smutrich. “My Knesset members vote for everything I want, and the ultra-Orthodox vote for everything I want, and Smutrich votes for everything I want,” Netanyahu said.

One of the founders of the Shulmanim, Avir Kara, came up for discussion and said: “Mr. Prime Minister is strong in vaccines but can not beat workers’ committees.” Representatives of the organization wondered what would be different in this election, and whether they could really trust Netanyahu, who immediately replied: “Who is playing with you? I am playing with you? I am changing the country for you. But I do not have the political power because I need 61”.

Meanwhile, his wife, Sarah Netanyahu, was interviewed on Channel 20 yesterday, and attacked Likud leavers Gideon Saar and Zeev Elkin and their “Tikva Hadasha” party: “After the 1999 election, my husband knew how to accept the loss – Saar did not know how to accept his loss. There was subversion even before he left. “It is a party of refugees. Elkin and Saar were members of our household. It hurts that people that Netanyahu has nurtured all these years are doing this to him.”
