Jesse Rissin Rosenfeld, freelance journalist based in Ramallah and Tel-Aviv speaks to Palestinian community and political leaders about today’s Israeli elections. As Israelis go to the polls, many in the Arab-Israeli community see no difference between the candidates and parties in their attitude toward the Palestinians living in Israel and in Palestine. With the exception of a strong pull to the right in Israeli society and a new-found legitimization of Arab-centered racism, many are afraid a hard-line position towards Palestinians is used as an election issue.
