Arab Community Leader Determined to Run in Jerusalem Municipal Election – Khaled Abu Toameh
Ramadan Dabash, an east Jerusalem community leader who has formed an Arab list to run in the upcoming Jerusalem Municipality election, said Wednesday he is determined to proceed despite PLO secretary-general Saeb Erekat’s recent call to boycott the election. “Who is this Saeb Erekat, and who does he represent?” Dabash said. “He does not live in Jerusalem, and he does not represent the people living here.”
“Our goal is to improve the living conditions of our people in the city and provide them with badly needed municipal services….We live in Jerusalem, we carry Israeli ID cards, we work with Israelis. If all that is fine, why can’t we have our own representatives in the municipal council?”  (Jerusalem Post)
