Ra’am MK Saeed Alkharumi seems to have formed a habit of making threats. It began on Sunday morning when he threatened to oppose the new government due to his dissatisfaction with some parts of the coalition agreements regarding the Negev.

Ultimately, Alkharumi absented himself from the vote rather than voting against the government. But his threats regarding the Negev continue, with a new threat made on Wednesday on Facebook, Arutz Sheva reported.

“If the government doesn’t provide satisfactory solutions to the problem of unrecognized villages and the Bedouin settlement in the Negev in the near future, this will have political consequences,” Alkharumi stated.

Following Alkharumi’s threats, Religious Zionist Party MK Orit Strook slammed the new government.

“Just like the Oslo Accords, the agreements with Ra’am are just a platform for the ongoing blackmail of the Muslim Brotherhood without which the government would instantly fall. The ink [of the coalition agreements] has yet to dry, and preparations are already being made for ‘flexibility’ in the Family Reunification Law, as well as the implementation of the Kaminetz Law [against illegal Arab construction].”

“[Ra’am chairman] Mansour Abbas understands very well that the prime minister’s stability rests with him and is acting accordingly.”

  1. If the Zionists hadn’t invaded a century ago, then this Bedouin issue and all the rest would have been the UN or the UK’s problem, while Jews would have continued to live in peace in the holy land, as they did before the Zionists invaded there.

    Yet the eigel of Zionism still hasn’t been smashed.

  2. Katan, enough with your antisemitic propaganda. Jews NEVER lived in peace in the holy land, not since the Romans came. They were oppressed, robbed, murdered, and treated as a subject race. And the zionists didn’t “invade”; they are Jews with the inherent right to return home, and all they did was exercise that right, which you cannot deny. Every Jew has the right to return home to HIS land, which the Torah says belongs to us and only to us. The Arabs are trespassers there, even leshitoscho.
