MK Khenin announced he's not running for Tel-Aviv mayor MK Dov Khenin (Hadash) announced on Friday that he is not running for mayor of Tel Aviv. Khenin considered whether to run against present mayor Ron Huldai (Labor party) for a long time. A poll showed Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz had the best chance of any candidate to beat Huldai. The poll, ordered by Meretz and conducted by Dialog, showed Huldai winning 50 percent of the vote and Horowitz 33 percent, with 17 percent undecided between the two. Khenin won 34.3 percent of the vote in the last election compared to 50.8 percent for Huldai. Khenin was the mayoral candidate for the Ir Lekulanu ("City for All") local movement.
During his studies at the Hebrew University, Khenin headed the left-wing Jewish–Arab movement on campus. He was also active in the peace movement, pushing for a shared Jewish-Arab political partnership. Additionally, Khenin was heavily involved in the struggles for human rights and workers' rights. For years, Khenin has been active in numerous environmental or
Shin Bet summons Left activists for "warning conversations" The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) filed a petition on July 25 asking the High Court of Justice to order the General Security Service (Shin Bet) to stop its practice of summoning Left activists for "warning conversations." The petition includes testimonies of political and social activists who were called in over the past year for "warning conversations" with Shin Bet agents. The testimonies reveal how these conversations, which were not formal investigations on suspicion of specific crimes, were used to deter activists who pursue agendas outside the consensus. The conversations included personal questions about the citizens' political activities, relationships and finances. In some cases the agents raised general claims (but not specific allegations) about involvement in disturbances of the peace; in others, activists were told explicitly that while "for now" they were not suspected of violating the law, they should be careful not to do so in the future.

Uprooting ("Transfer") Law Hits the Road The Prawer Plan – Expulsion of Tens of Thousands of Arab Palestinian Bedouins in Al Naqab (the Negev)
A Statement by the Communist Party of Israel
The Prawer Plan, which has been cooking for years, has passed its first reading in the Knesset in June 2013 and is about to be realized in the near future. As a Law, the Plan is going to confiscate 800,000 dunums of land in Al Naqab and expel over 50,000 Bedouins (who belong to the Arab Palestinian national minority within Israel) from their native land and residence. This inhumane plan will also lead to the demolition of 35 historic Arab villages that the governments of Israel continuously refuse to recognize, and will confine 30% of Arab Bedouins in Al Naqab to 1% of the land.
Apparently, the most horrible aspect of this law is that in order to receive any land compensation those new internally displaced people (IDPs) have to agree first to be removed from their homes, and to be re-located at a location chosen for them by the gover
Palestinian flag flew in the Knesset The Palestinian flag flew in the Israeli Knesset on last Wednesday as several senior Palestinian Authority representatives came to visit more than 30 Israeli ministers and MKs. The visit was organized by the Knesset Lobby for the Promotion of a Solution to the Israeli-Arab Conflict, led by MK Hilik Bar (Labor), and by the OneVoice organization, a group that calls to end the occupation of the occupied Palestinian territories and to create a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Palestinian lawmaker Abdullah Abdullah told the MKs, "It's moving to see our flags flying next to each other. That's exactly how we need to be committed to negotiations… as two nations, equal to each other. Our goal is to live as neighbors in two states west of the Jordan River,” he continued. “Neither of us is going to disappear from here, not to the desert or to the sea, so we need to work hard to end the conflict and end the occupation." Abdullah invited MK Bar and the other Israeli representatives to vis
