"Arab MKs enjoy full rights as legislators yet regularly denounce Israel and side with its enemies"

Reader comment on item: "Hamas is Worse than Israel, Worse than Sharon"

Submitted by Krista (Canada), Mar 10, 2008 at 13:03

Arab Members of the Israeli government enjoy full rights as legislators yet regularly denounce Israel.

MK Ahmed Tibi is Deputy Speaker of the Knesset and has a large poster of PLO terrorist Yasser Arafat on the wall of his Knesset office.

On Tuesday, March 4th, Arab Knesset members participated in a domenstration through the Israeli city of Umm el-Fahm …

The crowd chanted "Israel, the mother of terror" and held a sign that read "Stop the Zionazi" in English. Additional slogans were "Rest, O martyr, we will complete the task," "Warm blessings to the rock children," as well as the standard "With blood and spirit, we will redeem Palestine." The participants held Syrian and PLO flags. Some of them covered their faces with keffiyehs, or traditional headdresses, in the manner of terrorist thugs. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/125464

On Thursday, March 6th, two days later, a Palestinian terrorist enters a school and murders 8 students and seriously injures many others:

"An incitement campaign promoted by Arab [Muslim] leaders and MKs is what led to the terror attack at Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem on Thursday"

"the Arab MKs cannot deny their responsibility for the attack in Jerusalem. The same incitement, the same collaboration with the terror group were also evident in the case of Azmi Bishara [Christian MK]. They can't escape responsibility for the attack." http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1981875/posts

Who are the people of Umm el-Fahm? http://www.beyondimages.info/b82.html

Who elects Islamists to represent them in the Israeli government [Knesset] ?
