Arab MK: 'Palestine Belongs to Arabs, Not Jews'


Israeli Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List/Ram Ta’al) attacked the State of Israel in a fiery editorial published in the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Quds on Sunday.

Tibi wrote in the editorial that “Palestine belongs to its Arab residents, not to the Jewish occupiers.” 

Tibi told Palestinian Authority Arabs in Ramallah seven months ago that they should fight the "occupation" until they take over all of the Israeli land according to the 1949 Armistice agreement.  He made the remarks in a huge rally celebrating the Fatah movement, headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
