WHAT DID YOU THINK LIKUD IS?:

Amid Likud's 'Bibi or Tibi' campaign, ADL slams 'demonization' of Israeli Arabs (MICHAEL BACHNER, 3/11/19, Times of Israel)

The Anti-Defamation League on Sunday lambasted political rhetoric "vilifying" Israeli Arabs, referring to frequent alarmist accusations by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing allies that their rivals supposedly intend to form a government with Arab Knesset parties.

"The role of Arab parties in the Israeli Knesset is increasingly emerging as a key wedge of the current election campaign, with several party leaders and politicians vowing not to include them in any future coalition, while accusing their political foes of a willingness to do so," Carole Nuriel, director of the ADL's Israel office, said in a statement that didn't explicitly mention Netanyahu.

"In some cases, even the distinction between Arab parties and the Arab population is blurred and these parties are simply referred to as 'the Arabs.'"
