Ahmed Tibi, an Arab Member of Israel’s Knesset, says he misses late arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat, who dedicated his life to fighting Israel both diplomatically and with extreme violence.
Member of Knesset (MK) Ahmed Tibi of the Arab Joint List published a post on Facebook Wednesday in which he expressed his longing for arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat, late head of the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority who was responsible for the death of thousands of Israelis.
“Today, August 4, the 86th birthday of the great symbol, Yasser Arafat,” Tibi wrote. “The leader of a nation, the story of a revolution. How I miss you!”
Tibi, a medical doctor and champion of the Palestinian cause, served as Arafat’s political adviser for many years.
In November of 1996, Tibi said: “All of my moves are made in according to his [Arafat’s] direction. I believe he places trust in me, and I hope that I justify that.”
Tibi has a long history of supporting the war against Israel’s existence, utilizing his legal immunity as a parliamentarian to promote ideas and voice opinions that would otherwise be considered treasonous.
In January, he raised the Palestinian Authority flag as he ascended the Temple Mount together with Muslim leaders.
“Al-Quds [Jerusalem] is the capital of Arab Palestine and al-Aqsa mosque is a place of worship for Muslims,” he stated.
In November he urged European parliaments to impose sanctions on Israel in wake of the tensions on the Temple Mount. “There are pyromaniacs in the government and in the Knesset” who are allegedly instigating violence, Tibi declared, adding that Muslims are the “true owners” of the Temple Mount.
