Galilee Arab rally calls for replacing Arab MKs

Might be significant?
Arabs are fed up with their representatives in the Knesset and believe that the time has come to replace them, according to Rifat Assadi, a folklore poet from the Galilee village of Deir al-Assad.

He accused the Arab MKs of destroying the Arab minority's relations with the state through incitement and identification with outside political forces and countries.

Speaking Monday at a rally in his village, Assadi said: "It's time to change our leadership, especially because of its role in the October 2000 events, when 13 of our best young men were killed. The incitement [by the Arab MKs] has seriously damaged the interests and reputation of the Arab community." . . .
