Israeli opposition politician Benny Gantz declared yesterday that the occupied West Bank is the “second best place” to be an Arab in the Middle East behind Israel, reported Haaretz. Speaking at an English-language event in Tel Aviv “attended by several hundred immigrants and visitors”, the former military chief and Blue and White (Kahol Lavan) list leader said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu erred in barring US politicians Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering. According to Gantz, the two congresswomen would then be “seeing with their own eyes” that “the best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is in Israel…and the second best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is the West Bank”.
