Arab MK: Fight Israeli ‘occupation


An Israeli Arab Knesset member urged Palestinians to fight Israeli “occupation.”

Ahmed Tibi, from the Knesset’s United Arab List Party, attacked Israel in an editorial in the Arabic-language Al-Quds on Sunday, writing that “Palestine belongs to its Arab residents, not to the Jewish occupiers.”

Seven months ago, Tibi told Palestinians at a Fatah faction rally in the West Bank city of Ramallah that they should fight Israel until they capture the entire West Bank, including eastern Jerusalem.
