Mansour Abbas is not a man who wastes time, and in the first hundred days of RAAM in the coalition he spent all his time on what really matters: money.

Not a trivial matter, at the end of the four nerve-wracking election campaigns that ended in the historic milestone, in which the United Arab List headed by him supports a Zionist government.

But since joining the coalition, Abbas has been goal-oriented in advancing the realization of his main election promise - the budget.



Everyone around him is referring to his significant achievement so far, which is the money marked for Arab society in the next state budget, and knows how to repeat it as well-memorized: about 30 billion shekels in total, of which almost 2.5 billion shekels for eradicating crime on Arab streets.

The achievement should be taken with a limited guarantee. First of all, because the state budget expects another second and third reading in the Knesset, and anything else can happen along the way. Abbas understands this and in the meantime is not celebrating a victory. Although here and there in one interview or another, especially in Arabic, he agreed to say "we got what we wanted", but at the same time, and especially in the Hebrew media, he also conveys the opposite - with implicit threats of what will happen if not, as in politics as in sports, the game does not Is over until it is over.



"We were able to put all the problems on the table. We can only see the difference after the budget is approved. We are on a real test but it is more of a test for the government," says Walla! MK Mazen Ghanaim, No. 2 in the Supreme Court. "We will have to sit down with every minister who will have to take Arab society into account. It will be in dialogue and dialogue with the ministers and CEOs, of course, because when you are in the coalition then all the doors are open and that is how it should be."



Ghanaim understands that in the Israeli reality, even securing the budget will not guarantee that the billions will flow to the Arab localities.

Supervising this is the task that will accompany him throughout his term, so that he can return to the electorate and justify the precedent-setting and controversial step of joining the Zionists, and especially the haters, also of the mainstream Arab society - Bennett, Shaked and Lieberman.

Perhaps because of this, Abbas is on a skipping journey between the Arab localities.

Ghanaim, former mayor of Sakhnin, says that "the head of an authority knows what the needs and pain of his residents are, more than any MK. Poverty and unemployment and violence are already known to everyone, but they need to expand jurisdiction, outline plans, stop house demolitions, recognition. In localities in the Negev. "



He further notes what is perhaps the party's great achievement, even if it cannot be quantified in shekels: "The Arab parties constantly sat on the bench and looked into the distance. Today the RAAM is within the coalition and it has influence.

"RAAM has proven to everyone that it is a legitimate player in Israeli politics. We have put in the head of the Jewish citizen that we are equal citizens in the State of Israel. This will have long-term effects."

"In the meantime, there is a lot of talk," concludes the centenary of RAAM Jafar Farah, director of the Mossawa Center, who last month initiated a seminar in Nazareth on Arab society's demands from the state budget. Exacerbating, and in the Negev so far no unrecognized village has been recognized. Ayman Odeh was also once a favorite of the Hebrew media and in 2015 he too was promised a paradise for Arab society. He did not know then how government works and Netanyahu had promised 15 billion. "



According to Farah, the Mossawa Center checks the state budget bill to -2022 and find the billions promised REM:" At first promised 53 billion in five years, this government meeting It has dropped to 32 billion, the state budget has already been approved in the Knesset on first reading and the directors of many government ministries with the Ministry of Finance where the money promised to Abbas will come from. This is almost six billion shekels that were not included in the 2022 budget proposal. "



"Unfortunately, the disappointing Arab society, I am afraid that this time too the disappointment will come. The few films, if any, will be cut at the end by the prime minister or the minister in charge, as Bibi did," he says.
