Tibi & Co. Forget They're Supposed to Represent Israel


Member of Knesset Alex Miller (Yisrael Beytenu) attacked hostile Arab Knesset members, Thursday afternoon, for their statements criticizing an amateur United States video which purportedly mocks Islamic prophet Muhammad. The video has been blamed for deadly anti-American rioting in Libya, and violence in Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen.

Miller said, "[Ahmed] Tibi and his friends have forgotten that they are supposed to represent the citizens of Israel and continue to serve as agents of terrorist organizations. Through their actions, they continue in the line of incitement which they lead and their words can lead us to the reality that took place in Libya, thereby strengthening the Al Qaeda [terror] organization. Unfortunately, hypocrisy is running around and I did not hear them condemn movies made against Israeli citizens." He stressed "as those who preach equality and democracy, I remind them that freedom of artistic expression is an integral part of democracy."
