UMM EL-FAHM, Israel — Israeli police fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse Arab protesters at an Israeli-Arab city on Wednesday in an effort to prevent a clash with ultranationalist Jews planning to march there.
The Jewish extremists are admirers of Meir Kahane, a U.S.-born rabbi who preached that Palestinians should be expelled from Israel and the West Bank.
