To ensure a victory for himself and his party, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a race-baiting video, which he posted on Facebook. Here is what the video said.
The right-wing government is in danger.
Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls.
Left-wing organizations are busing them out.
We have no V15, we have Order 8 [code for emergency call up to IDF reserve duty],
we have only you.
Get out to vote, bring your friends and family, vote Likud in order to close the gap between us and ‘Labor.'”
With your help, and with the help of God, we will build a nationalist government that will protect the State of Israel.
Now, this should sound alarmingly racist. But there are lots of PEPs out there (Progressive Except on Palestine), who may have some trouble comprehending just how racist it is. So, allow me to present the American translation of Bibi said. To do this, I simply replace right wing with Republican, Arab with Black, Likud with Republican, Labor with Democrats and Israel with the United States.
