Trump to host Netanyahu at White House next week, 2 weeks before election, Times of Israel

US President Donald Trump will host Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington next week, the White House confirmed Wednesday, just two weeks before Israelis go to the polls for national elections on April 9. Netanyahu and Trump will hold a “working meeting” on Monday, followed by a dinner at the White House on Tuesday, the US administration said in a statement.

Hectored by Netanyahu, Israeli Arabs Could Have the Final Say, New York Times

David M. Halbfinger writes, “Mr. Netanyahu has been fanning the flames of anti-Arab sentiment almost daily. He has warned Israelis that his main challenger, the retired army chief Benny Gantz, would ‘hand over parts of the homeland to the Arabs’ and that he would make alliances with Arab parties that ‘want to destroy’ Israel. Mr. Netanyahu has also joined forces with a racist faction whose leaders support expelling Arab citizens and call them ‘the enemy.’ Such appeals have worked for Mr. Netanyahu in the past. This time they might backfire. […] The poll suggests that Mr. Netanyahu’s racial provocations may spur turnout among Arab voters motivated to usher him out of office.”
