Complaint Filed Against MK Tibi for Incitement and Racism
Arutz Sheva ^ | 14/1/13 | Elad Benari

Posted on 01/13/2013 4:01:29 PM PST by Eleutheria5

A complaint was filed on Sunday to the police against Arab MK Ahmed Tibi on suspicion of incitement, racism and contempt for state symbols.

The complaint was filed by Eliyahu Nissim, a member of the Otzma LeYisrael party, headed by MKs Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari. Eliyahu explained that he filed the complaint since, "a few days ago Tibi posted on his Facebook page a picture that depicts himself with the Arabic caption 'Allahu Akbar on you' with small pictures of dogs made up of the symbols of the Star of David, the State emblem and the flag of the State of Israel, drawn underneath."

Nissim said that Tibi removed the picture several hours later, due to protests from other users, but not before the picture was documented in a screenshot.

"As the elections inch closer it seems that MK Ahmed Tibi is working overtime spreading racism and hatred towards Israel," said Nissim, adding, "The Israeli Flag, Emblem and Anthem Law prohibits disrespect of the state flag and prohibits the degradation of its symbols. In addition, the picture has pictures of dogs made out of the Star of David, the symbol of Judaism, which constitutes dissemination of racism, an act for which the punishment by law is imprisonment for five years."

"Following the publication of the picture, I filed a complaint with the police along with documentation of the findings," he said. "As a citizen of Israel who pays Tibi's salary I will not, under any circumstances, accept such publications that have similarities to the anti-Jewish cartoons and signs in Nazi Germany which compared the Jews to dogs. The terrorist organizations regularly compare between Jews and animals and it seems that in this publication Tibi simply dared to express his intense hatred and racism ..."

looks like Israeli laws are sourced differently than our own. But, it’s their country. Still, how are Arabs a different ‘race’ than Israelis? Don’t they all have the same DNA, so the differences are just religion and culture?

Exactly what I was going to post. Back in May or June, I posted that they weren’t, and promptly got ambushed by some self-professed anthropologists here on FR.

Not wanting to defend this ridiculous law, but the term “racism” in English is usually used to translate “giz’anut,” which would more accurately be translated as “bigotry,” whether racial, religious, nationalist, or cultural.

Tibi has been doing crap like this for years and nothing has ever been done. When it comes to the Arabs, Israel’s position is “Savlanut l’giz’anut.” But if an Israeli expresses his displeasure with the Arabs it’s just the opposite.

If only tribalism did not exist. Socialists stoke tribalist idenity and divisions for power but they also recognize it’s destructiveness as they pretend it is only religion based tribes that causes hatred. But it is any kind of separation, resentment, and envy based upon sex, class, skin color, etc. So they stoke tribalism while they pretend it religion causes it’s darkness.

Jesus put the kabosh on all that with forgiveness (release) from the offenses and harm of the past. Everyone gets to start over, clean with God. We are one family - the children of God. He loves us so we love one another. We are all sinners so we don’t hate based upon sin. We all have the same Father.

Ofcourse, liberals have set out to make Jesus their central enemy. He wrecks their dark power schemes.

Latma TV even had a skit where Tibi was complaining to the BGaTZ (High Court) that he never gets any attention, no matter how outrageous his malfeasance. The judges had security remove him, and ignored his protests.

“... but they also recognize it’s destructiveness as they pretend it is only religion based tribes that causes hatred.”

Do they name Islam as one?

From my crystal ball I think this is what the globalists have planned:

Globalists are planning to take out Chritianity and Judism and establishing some satanic, watermelon new age pegan religion in it’s place in the European and North American regions. They are creating an Islam region in the Middle East and Africa.

Western globalists are only using Islamists to take out the Jews and Christians. They want Israel out of the designated Muslim region so they are putting in the Muslim Brotherhood to do it.

After that, they will take care of the religious Muslims in the West by moving them back “home.”

Every religion except Islam, which is an innocent victim of the imperialism and racism of the other religions. All they want is to live in piece.
