Report: 40,000 Sign Petition to Disqualify MK Tibi


Since the announcement of early Knesset elections, 40,000 people have expressed support, on the Facebook page of the Yisrael Achshav (Israel Now) movement, for a petition to disqualify Member of Knesset Ahmed Tibi (Ra'am-Ta'al United Arab List) from running, according to a Monday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily.

Tibi responded, "This is a campaign of incitement against me to deprive the Arab public of authentic and stubborn leadership. I will continue to express my opinions and act for the interests of the sector."
