Today, municipal elections are held all over Israel, and Arabs with either citizenship or residency status are able to vote and have influence.

Yesterday, Abbas’ Fatah Movement followed the lead of the PA’s religious leaders who have prohibited running and voting in the elections as an Islamic ruling, as reported by Palestinian Media Watch. Fatah posted five posters on Facebook calling Palestinians to “boycott the occupation’s municipal elections.” The movement even had a special logo for this, showing a ballot box which is crossed out. Text on the logo says: “Boycott the occupation’s municipal elections.”
