Arab newspapers view all candidates as 'extremists'

YNet reports that all of the Arab media view all of Israel's leading candidates as 'extremists,' saying that the race is between "Livni on the right, Netanyahu on the extreme right and Lieberman on the even more extreme right."

The cartoon below, which shows an F-16 fighter jet dropping ballots on the ruins of Gaza, appeared in the pan-Arab daily al-Hayat.

"The race is between the Right, whose candidate is Tzipi Livni and her party Kadima, and the extreme Right, represented by Likud Chairman Benjamin Netanyahu, and even more extreme candidates like Yisrael Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman."

The paper reported that according to recent polls in Israel, the Right will win in elections. Leading pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat also estimated the next Israeli government will be a right-wing one.

"Estimates say the Right will win; Lieberman is the key to forming a government… Despite recent polls that show the rightist bloc will win with an absolute majority (66 out of 120 mandates), a very tight race has been noted between the rightist Likud party headed by Benjamin Netanyahu and the 'centralist' Kadima party headed by Tzipi Livni," Al-Hayat read.

"This came after Likud lost many mandates to the extreme rightist party Yisrael Beiteinu headed by Avigdor Lieberman, whose election campaign focused on incitement against Arabs."

Another pan-Arab daily, Al-Quds Al-Arabi, featured an article saying, "Elections in Israel: Estimates say right-wing parties that refuse to retreat to 1967 borders and object the right of return – will win."
If any party that doesn't accept the 'right of return' is extremist, then we are all 'extremists' in Arab eyes. Even the Meretz party, the most left-wing of Israel's parties, does not accept the 'right of return.'
Listen to Ran Cohen, Member of the Knesset for the left-wing Meretz Party and former leader of the Left Camp of Israel peace movement. “Even I refuse the right of return,” he said. “It's impossible. It's the opposite of a solution. Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] and the others know our position on the right of return. Who are they going [to] negotiate this with? Not me, not Meretz, not Peace Now. Who? The Communist Party? Not even the radical left supports this.”
Don't expect 'peace' anytime soon.

I don't expect there to be peace because the Arab demand for Israel to commit national suicide is one no Israeli government is ever going to embrace.

israel was created by terror. in 1948 the jewish state ethnic cleansed over 800 000 arabs from palestine.in 1967 israel again drove many arabs 'into the sea'. by all rules of law they should be allowed to return to their homeland but the zionist are morally bankrupt . and you have the nerve to call the arabs 'terrorist'. the arabs haven't even come close to jews when it comes to terror.

Considering every Arab country is cleansed of all non-Islamic minorities and the Palestinians Islamists have done their utmost to wipe out the Christians among them, the charge is a laughable accusation.

For the record, the only country in Arabs are allowed to demonstrate against the government and run against it in an election... is Israel. If Arabs tried to do that in any Arab country, they would wind up dead if they aren't locked up in jail first.

Israel's adversaries have nothing to teach the Jewish State about respect for human rights.

the arabs for thousands of years lived peacefully with all the major religions of the region until zionism rose its ugly head.it was the zionist who cleverly used and fanned anti semitism so as to ingather the jews it needed to create a jewish state.the zionist had an interest in provoking the very disease which , ultimately, they hoped to cure.the jews of iraq are a good example with zionist agents letting off bombs and spreading fear to scare the jews to israel.that was when 'cruel zionism' was coined.
but still some jews have remained in some arab countries and are treated with respect, as with the jews of iran.
