Tibi: Arabs Belong Here, Jews Don't

Arabs belong in Israel, while Jews do not, said Member of Knesset Ahmed Tibi during Land Day protests on Wednesday. “The color of our skin is the color of the earth here. But there are those whose skin is the color of the snow in Moldova who want to expel us and dispossess us,” he told Arab crowds in the illegal Bedouin village of El-Akarib.

Tibi added, “The land here speaks Arabic.”
