MK Ahmed Tibi raised the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terror group's flag on the Temple Mount Saturday, after he arrived there along with Muslim leaders to celebrate the birth of the Muslim prophet, Mohammed. 

"Al-Quds (Jerusalem) is the capital of Arab Palestine and Al-Aqsa mosque is a place of worship for Muslims," declared Tibi during the event.

Tibi then hoisted the PLO flag.

"The parade here is a message of freedom and peace and [Arabs] will be released from Occupation to lead a free and normal life. The procession ended at the Al-Aqsa Mosque which is the crown jewel of Jerusalem, the capital of Palestine," he declared.

This is not the first time Tibi has made inflammatory statements claiming Muslims 'own' the Temple Mount, which is Judaism's holiest site. In November, Tibi made similar claims, prompting a fiery backlash from several MKs.
