An Islamic council which provides spiritual advice to the United Arab List met Sunday to rule on the party’s future in the Bennett government. The Shura Council of the Southern Islamic Movement convened an emergency session Sunday afternoon to decide whether the United Arab List (Ra’am) party will remain a partner in the coalition government following days of violent Arab rioting and efforts by Israeli security forces to quell the violence.

UAL chief MK Mansour Abbas is urging members of the Shura Council not to take dramatic steps, such as forcing the party to resign from the government. The meeting was called amid heavy pressure on the party from within the Southern Islamic Movement to bolt the government over the use of police forces to break up Arab rioting on the Temple Mount, including the insertion of Border Police officers to the Al Aqsa Mosque, after hundreds of rioters barricaded themselves inside the building last Friday.
