Ehud Barak alienates Israeli Arabs

Barak's disturbing connections with Jeffrey Epstein have already made some headlines. Now, another thing making some headlines is that he's made comments that angered the Joint Arab List's chairman:
Joint Arab List Chairman Ayman Odeh over the weekend called on former prime minister and Democratic Union member Ehud Barak to drop out of the Sept. 17 Knesset race, saying Barak's apology for the events of October 2000 was hollow.

In a Facebook post, Odeh condemned Barak for calling on Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan to temper the police's reaction to the escalating protests against Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit, but rejected the apology, saying Barak had "betrayed," Israeli Arabs.

Earlier, Barak had written a Facebook post about arrests made during the weekly protest near Mendelblit's home in Petach Tikva – a weekly occurrence expressing frustration by some who believe the attorney general is dragging his feet in the investigations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"Erdan, Petah Tikva is not Umm al-Hiran, civilians are allowed to protest," Barak wrote, referring to the Bedouin village that has been at the center of diplomatic controversy ahead of its planned demolition.

Commenting on Barak's apology for the killing of 12 Israeli Arabs and a Palestinian by security forces during clashes in 2000, which took place while Barak was prime minister and are widely considered at the trigger to the Second Intifada, Odeh wrote, "Barak, protesting is allowed in Umm al-Hiran as well, and Arab citizens are also allowed to protest.

"Nineteen years have passed since you were responsible for the killing of 13 Arab citizens because they took to the streets. Nineteen years since you betrayed the hundreds of thousands of Arabs who voted for you in the direct election against Benjamin Netanyahu. We learned the hard way that there are more important things than the politics of 'anyone but Bibi.'"
Well, it looks like Barak can't please everyone in the Arab sector after all, try as he might. It's possible that, as a result, less will be voting for the joint list Meretz formed with Barak under the laughable name of "Democratic Camp". Maybe Barak should consider retiring from politics already, and come to think of it, from the business sector as well. He may already have millions provided to him by Epstein when he was still around, and he may want to donate them all to charity as well. There's much more important things Barak can do with his time than waste it in the Knesset.
