MK (Ta’al) Dr. Ahmed Tibi on Tuesday referred to “settlements” as a “growth which must be removed”.

Visiting residents of the Arab neighborhood of Silwan Tuesday, homes slated for demolition because they are illegal, Deputy Knesset Speaker Tibi spoke of the “cancerous growth in the heart of Palestinian land that must be removed”.

The visit to Silwan was a solidarity move for the residents, and an equally strong act of defiance to the Knesset, which at the same time was conducting a pre-Jerusalem Day visit to Ir David, which Tibi earlier in the week stated “was occupied and not liberated”.

Tibi this week also introduced a bill to abolish the Jerusalem Law, which was enacted following the 1967 Six Day War, declaring Jerusalem the united undivided capital of the Jewish People. Tibi stated “Jerusalem is occupied” and added there will never be any agreement with the PA (Palestinian Authority) until eastern Jerusalem is “returned” to the Arabs to serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
