Masoud Ganaim, 49, from the Islamic Movement and number two in the unified Arab list, speaks to the media in his office in the Arab city of Sakhnin, about 23 kilometers (14 miles) east of Acre, Israel, Monday, Jan. 26, 2015. Coping with new election laws that make it harder for smaller parties to enter Israel's parliament, the country’s Arab political parties for the first time are banding together under one ticket to boost their chances in upcoming national elections.

(AP Photo/Dan Balilty)HAIFA, Israel (AP) — Israel's Arab political parties are banding together under one ticket for the first time ever ahead of national elections in March, hoping to boost turnout and help unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mid-town Manhattan is pictured from the top of the United Nations building in New YorkBy Jonathan Allen and Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - A life-threatening blizzard barreled into the U.S. Northeast, affecting up to 20 percent of Americans by making workers and students housebound, halting thousands of flights and prompting New York to ban cars from roads and halt subway trains. The National Weather Service warned of a "life-threatening blizzard" that could dump as much as 30 inches (76 cm) of snow on parts of the region. It said winds could gust up to 55 mph (80 kph) around New York City. "Please stay home," New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told residents, ordering all but the most essential government workers in his state home from Monday afternoon until Wednesday at the earliest.
