MK Tibi Banned From Giving One-Minute Plenum Speeches

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

The Knesset Ethics Committee has prohibited Raam-Ta’al MK Ahmed Tibi  from delivering one-minute speeches for the next month, after he used the plenum to lambast, in Arabic, an earlier Ethics Committee decision to suspend him from the Knesset for a week.

Tibi’s spokesman responded with a complaint to Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin that the Knesset Ethics Committee is a “right-wing tribunal that oppresses Tibi because of his speeches.”

“MK Tibi will continue to give his profound and sharp speeches without fear and without hesitation,” his spokesman added.

Central Elections Committee to Discuss Disqualifying Tibi From Next Knesset Election

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

The Central Elections Committee chairwoman and Supreme Court judge Miriam Naor said the Central Elections Committee is likely to discuss the possibility of disqualifying Raam-Ta’al MK Ahmed Tibi from running for re-election to the Knesset, due to an inflammatory speech he made praising martyrdom.

According to Basic Law: The Knesset, a candidate or party running for Knesset membership may be disqualified if it promotes “(1) negation of the existence of the State of Israel as the state of the Jewish people; (2) negation of the democratic character of the State; (3) incitement to racism.”
