JNS.org – Ahmad Tibi, an Arab member of the Israeli Knesset from the Ra’am-Ta’al party, waved a Palestinian flag during a parade held this weekend to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad.

“I wanted to symbolize the Palestinians’ right to an independent state with a capital in east Jerusalem,” Tibi said.

After the incident, attorney Yossi Fuchs, chairman of the Legal Forum for Israel, asked Israeli Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to order a criminal investigation against Tibi.
