Top Arab Israeli MP begins 4-day march for Bedouins

The head of Israel's Arab parliamentary bloc Ayman Odeh (4th R) and Israeli left-wing MP Dov Khenin (R) march, on March 26, 2015, alongside several dozen protesters in the Bedouin village of Wadi al-NaamWadi al-Naam (Israel) (AFP) – Israel’s top Arab MP began a four-day walk to Jerusalem on Thursday in a show of support for the impoverished Bedouin community and to put a spotlight on the “human misery” they face. Ayman Odeh, who was elected in last week’s Israeli polls and heads the Arab parliamentary bloc, set off on a 100-kilometre (60-mile) walk from the southern Negev — where he has long campaigned for the rights of Bedouin Arabs. Odeh leads the Joint List, an alliance of Israel’s main Arab parties which won 13 of parliament’s 120 seats, becoming the third largest grouping in the Knesset. As part of the opposition, it has vowed to fight for the rights of Israel’s Arab minority which accounts for more than a fifth of the population and to push for a resumption of peace talks with the Palestinians.
