MK Ben-Ari: Expose Tibi's Real Agenda


MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) on Monday said that Knesset should have opportunity to vote on a bill proposed earlier by Arab MK Ahmed Tibi, and called for Tibi himself to be dismissed from the Knesset. “We must remove Tibi from the Knesset and vote on and defeat his bill by a large Zionist majority, and unveil Tibi's true intentions, which are to destroy the State of Israel.”

Tibi earlier proposed a law that called for penalties for anyone that did not recognized the “Nakba” as a day of mourning for Arabs. The bill was dismissed by Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin, but Ben-Ari said that “this action only serves Tibi's purposes.”
