Knesset Speaker Cancels Knesset Delegation to US Over Visa Denial to Nationalist MK

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin announced that he has canceled a Knesset delegation’s trip to the US after MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) was denied a US visa due to his past membership in Meir Kahane’s political party Kach.

MKs Tzipi Hotovely (Likud), Einat Wilf (Independence),  and Zehava Gal-On (Meretz) were scheduled to attend a women’s empowerment conference in Washington in late March. Although the visa denial was unrelated to the visit, Rivlin said he canceled it because the visa denial was “an affront to the entire Knesset.”

The State Department rejected Ben-Ari’s visa application two weeks ago because it considers Kach a terrorist organization. The party was banned from the Knesset in 1988.

In a letter to US ambassador to Israel, Daniel Shapiro, Rivlin blasted the rejection, saying that “[t]he United States’ allegation that a member of Knesset is a terrorist in unacceptable and is an affront to the entire Knesset.”

Ben-Ari, in a statement released by his assistant Itamar Ben-Gvir, thanked Rivlin for “standing strong against disrespect of the Knesset.”

Kahane, the controversial Rabbi and former MK, was assassinated in New York 20 years ago.

The US Embassy in Tel Aviv had no immediate comment.

MK Tibi Praises Palestinian ‘Martyrs’

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Raam-Taal MK Ahmad Tibi, remarking at a Palestinian Authority event commemorating Palestinian ‘martyrs,’ said last week that “the martyr is the symbol of the homeland.”

The NGO Palestinian Media Watch obtained and released the video, in which the Member of Knesset is also heard saying that “there is nothing more praiseworthy than those who die for the homeland.”

When questioned about his remarks, Tibi brushed off concerns as “Israeli ignorance.”

National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari, after being briefed on the matter, wrote a letter to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein, imploring him to prosecute Tibi.

“Your office has not hesitated to prosecute right-wing activists for less severe speeches,” Ben-Ari wrote. “The time has come to stop Tibi’s party.”

Security Forces Clash with Activists in Outpost Community Evacuation

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Security forces dismantled the outpost community of Yissa Bracha early Thursday morning, resulting in violent clashes and the injuries of three police officers and six protesters.

The Three police officers sustained their wounds after climbing onto the roof of a structure that subsequently caved in.

Activists said they were peacefully protesting the operation when they were seized by security forces armed with tear gas, while police claimed to have encountered violent opposition upon their arrival at the scene.

National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari said that “[t]he obsessive and ongoing demolition of Jewish homes has reached the levels of the eviction of Jews from their homes in Gush Katif and northern Samaria. [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are persecuting residents, evicting children from their homes, and injuring protesters – and afterwards they wonder why there are ‘price tag’ actions.”

 The police evicted five families and dismantled six homes in the nascent community located east of Jerusalem.
