Acre City Councilman Ahmed Ooda (of the Hadash party) demands of the Mayor, Shimon Lankry, that signs in Arabic be installed in the entrance to City Hall. Ooda says he has previously asked for the addition of Arabic signage, but the response was negative. When the municipality was remodeled and the sign replaced, Arabic was not added.

[Translator's note: Acre is a mixed city, with a significant Arabic-speaking population.]
