Knesset Presidium Blocks 2 Bills by Tibi
The Knesset Presidium voted, Monday afternoon, to block two revisionist bills by Member of Knesset Ahmed Tibi (Raam-Taal) from being introduced. One of them would have recognized Jerusalem as the capital of a proposed Palestinian Authority state and the Islamic people. The other would have banned negative references in school textbooks to Arabs and Arab groups who fought the Jews prior to the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948.
Nationalists see Tibi as a professional provocateur, who specializes in humiliating the Knesset he is a part of. His past stunts include speeches at pro-terrorist venues, a bill that would punish "Nakba deniers," flying to Washington with the Palestinian Authority delegation that demanded statehood at the UN, flying to meet Muammar Qaddafi and many more.
