Jerusalem Arabs Eye Participation in Municipal Elections – Nir Hasson

Ramadan Dabash, a social activist from east Jerusalem, announced this week he will run in Jerusalem’s municipal elections in October, which Arabs have largely boycotted since 1967. Dabash, chairman of the community administration of the Tzur Baher neighborhood, said, “I think people are ripe to vote. Some people object, saying this is Israelization and normalization, but I tell them this is everyone’s municipality and everyone’s country.”

    In the past, several Arabs wanted to run in the local election, but stepped down after they were threatened or their cars set on fire. A recent survey found that nearly 60% of east Jerusalem residents believe Arabs should take part in the municipal elections. (Ha’aretz)

Israel Called Strategic Partner of Azerbaijan

Israel is a strategic partner of Azerbaijan and both cooperate in military-technical matters, in the latest technologies, and in healthcare, Ali Hasanov, the Azerbaijani President’s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs, told the Israel-Azerbaijan International Association (AzIz).

    “Israeli specialists have been working in Azerbaijan for several years in various fields of our economy, and in particular, in agriculture…where they introduce the latest technologies and equipment. Our countries are also united by our people. There is a big community of Azerbaijanis in Israel, who have already integrated into Israeli society and represent our republic with dignity,” Hasanov said. He also noted that in recent years, Azerbaijan is engaged in building a “bridge” between Israel and the Muslim world. (Trend-Azerbaijan)
