    Despite being a citizen of Israel and a member of the Israeli Knesset, radical Arab MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List) is in London on Monday to take part in a diplomatic push urging the British parliament to recognize “Palestine” in a non-binding vote. Tibi is talking with British MPs of the Labour Party, whose member Grahame Morris proposed the vote, and trying to convince them that voting to recognize the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a state will advance the “peace process.” In fact, the Labour Party is reportedly highly divided over the vote, with many senior members of the...

    A particularly nasty debate broke out Monday evening between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Arab MK Ahmed Tibi – as Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was visiting the Knesset, looked on. Tibi screamed at Netanyahu, who spoke in praise of Israeli democracy, and later walked out when Harper said the same when he spoke to MKs. Speaking in Harper's presence, Netanyahu said he hoped the Arab world, including Syria, “would be able to have real parliaments, like that in Israel. In our parliament, anyone can say anything they want,” Netanyahu said. In Israel, MKs are free to scream or...

    Israeli Arab leaders continued to drum up opposition on Thursday to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s proposal that Israel offer the Palestinian Authority control over townships inhabited predominantly by Palestinians in exchange for settlements in the West Bank. During a demonstration against the Prawer-Begin Plan for Beduin resettlement, MK Ahmed Tibi lambasted “the immigrant” Liberman. “Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s statements regarding territorial swaps are provocative,” Tibi said. “We [Arabs] were in the Triangle before the establishment of the State of Israel. We didn’t come here on boats or planes.” “Liberman is an immigrant,” Tibi said. “If he wants to repartition the...

    MK Ahmed Tibi (Ra’am-Ta’al), who was an adviser to former Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Yasser Arafat and keeps in close contact with his successor Mahmoud Abbas, is accusing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of doing “everything he can” to prevent a peace agreement with the PA. “Netanyahu is not saying anything new. He is doing everything, absolutely everything, so that an agreement won’t happen. So why should anyone wonder why the Palestinian leadership is skeptical? It is closer to appealing to the UN institutions than to signing an agreement,”.... Tibi, who boasted that he speaks to Abbas “a lot”, also told...

    MK Ahmed Tibi on Saturday night slammed Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman over his remarks following the Bedouin violent ‘Day of Rage’. "The audacity of a fascist immigrant who sits on land which he stole from its Arab owners,” Tibi charged, responding to Liberman’s remarks that the Bedouin had stolen state land and were controlling it by force. “The Bedouin in the Negev did steal any land and they did not come here either on a plane or by boat,” he added. In his comments following the violent protests in the Negev, Haifa, Samaria and Gaza, Liberman called for a new...

    MK Ahmad Tibi (Raam Taal) berated Arab citizens of Israel Saturday for their relatively low turnout in the elections and blamed them for the loss of his party's fifth seat in the final vote count. Early counting gave the party five seats and would have left MK Taleb a-Sana in the parliament. However, upon completion of the counting of the "double envelope" votes, which are mostly those of soldiers, it turned out that Raam-Taal would only have four MKs. The seat they "lost" went to Bayit Yehudi and allowed Shuli Muallem, widow of Lt. Col. Moshe Muallem, a resident of...

    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...

    Israeli-Arab lawmakers lined up to incite against Israel on Tuesday saying the creation of the Jewish state was the "equivalent to the destruction of the First and Second [Jewish] Temples." Attending an event held in Aljoun near Umm al-Fahm, the Arab Knesset members were joined by the leader of the Islamic Movement's Northern Branch, Raed Salah, and the head of the Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, Mohammed Zidan. "I feel an atmosphere of victory," MK Jamal Zahalka said, referring to the end of a mass hunger strike by Arab security prisoners in Israeli prisons.. "They won a battle for their rights...

    Arab MK Ahmed Tibi, notorious for making statements against Israel while he serves in its parliament, has called for a boycott of products manufactured in Judea, Samaria, and east Jerusalem. Tibi made the controversial comments during a visit in Ottawa, Canada, on Monday. According to a report in The Montreal Gazette, Tibi also said he was aware that his remarks were a direct violation of the boycott law approved by the Knesset last July, though he seemed unfazed by that fact. “I said that I am willing to test this immoral law trying to prevent me, as a member of...

    MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Thursday called for the ejection from the Knesset of MK Ahmed Tibi, who termed terrorists “holy martyrs” (“shaheed”). “Tibi is a traitor and his comments incite terrorism,” said Danon. “He should be taken out of the Knesset and put behind bars.” Last week, it was revealed Wednesday, Tibi praised the Palestinian Authority’s “martyrs” at a ceremony held last week on the occasion of "Palestinian Martyrs Day” and sponsored by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The ceremony, which was broadcast on official PA TV, was translated by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) research organization, which presented the...

The ceremony, which was broadcast on official PA TV, was translated by the Palestinian Media Watch research organization, which presented the translated video on its website. “In the history of the peoples and their battles, the Palestinian shahid (martyr) is the height of glory,” Tibi said. “There is no higher value than death for the sake of Allah. The martyr is the one who breaks through and with his blood draws...

    Member of Knesset Ahmad Tibi (Ra'am-Ta'al-United Arab List) is scheduled to introduce a bill in the Knesset, Monday, that would deny approval to textbooks that use of the terms "gang" or "gang leader" to refer to Arabs who fought against the Jews before the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948 and would refer to them as "fighters". Under the measure, a team of Arab and Jewish historians would have to re-approve existing textbooks for further use. Knesset Legal Advisor Eyal Yinon cleared the bill for introduction, who did not view the proposal as seeking to undermine Israel's...

    Ahmed Tibi was not at all afraid to say on TV that he is the master of the Land of Israel. What does it mean that he was elected by Israeli Arabs? What makes Israeli Jews stand for this? I am the master here!" shouted MK Ahmad Tibi on Israeli television, completely losing his cool. When I heard that sentence I understood that I did not need to say anything more. I did not need to remind the viewers of our debate that Tibi was the aide and close advisor of the arch-murderer who killed more Jews than anybody since...

    The Arab Israeli lawmaker who accused the Jewish state of having 'racist' and 'fascist' policies enjoys rights and freedoms he wouldn't find anywhere else in the Middle East. - The Jewish state of Israel is a diverse nation that has absorbed people from more than 140 countries. Among its population are about 1.5 million Arabs, including Israeli Knesset member Ahmad Tibi, who in a May 23 Times interview lashed out at Israel, using inflammatory words like "racist" and "fascist." As is his style, Tibi failed to back up his white-hot rhetoric with hard facts. - In 1947, Arab leaders rejected...

    Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) landed in Beirut Wednesday night despite an official travel ban on government representatives from visiting 'enemy states.' He had just wrapped up a visit to Yemen. This is not the first time Tibi has spent time in Lebanon. He was criticized during the Second Lebanon War for travelling to Beirut despite Hizbullah attacks being launched at Israel from Lebanese soil. The story mirrors that of of Former Knesset Member Azmi Bishara. He resigned his position last year after an investigation into his repeated trips to Syria and Lebanon found that he had...

    WASHINGTON – A leader of the small worldwide Muslim reform movement is warning the West against wishful thinking as the U.S. government promotes an intensive dialogue with Islam. "The dialogue is not proceeding well because of the two-facedness of most Muslim interlocutors on the one hand and the gullibility of well-meaning Western idealists on the other," Bassam Tibi said Tuesday in an interview with United Press International. Syrian-born Tibi, who claims to be a direct descendant of the prophet Mohammed and teaches political science at Goettingen University in Germany, appealed for intellectual honesty in these exchanges. This Is 'Peace'? "First,...

But there is also bad news, namely growing confusion over who really is a moderate Muslim. This means that the ideological side of the war on terror is making some, but only limited, progress.The good news: Anti-Islamist Muslims have found their voice since September 11. Their numbers include distinguished academics such as Azar Nafisi (Johns Hopkins), Ahmed al-Rahim (formerly...
