Arab Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi celebrated the traditional birthday of the Muslim prophet Mohammed Saturday by hoisting a PLO flag on the Temple Mount and declaring it the capital of Palestine.
Tibi also criticized the United States for voting last week against the U.S. Security Council resolution that Israel must sign a peace treaty with the Palestinian Authority within one year based on PA demands and surrender half of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria within three years.
Police did nothing to stop Tibi.
Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch, who has said that Jewish Knesset Members should not be allowed even to visit the Temple Mount, has said nothing.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, who has called Jewish MK visits on the Temple Mount a “provocation,” has said nothing.
Lawyer Yossi Fuchs fired off a letter Saturday night to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, demanding that he act against MK Tibi just as he has acted in the past against anyone raising a flag stating ”Kahane Lives.”
Israel has declared Kahane Chai is an illegal group. Fuchs wrote Weinstein that the court has declared that the PLO is a terrorist group and argued that Tibi, by flying the PLO flag, violated the law concerning the prevention of terror.
What are the chances that Weinstein will even consider investigating Tibi?
