“We have a new strategic situation in front of us”: Will the joint list join the coalition?

Following the resignation of Idit Silman from the coalition, the members of the joint list became a tongue-in-cheek in the Knesset plenum. Today (Thursday), MK Ahmad Tibi spoke with Eran Singer here on Monday, and referred to the political opportunity created for the joint list. “There is no doubt that a political reality of 60-60 has created a new strategic situation for us.”

For the reason why the joint Kurt Tibi coalition will not join “collective responsibility”: “Do you imagine that I will agree to the demolition of houses in the Negev? That I will agree to budget for the Civil Administration?”.

Earlier, at the beginning of the conversation, Tibi claimed that the presence of security forces at the Nablus Gate was leading to clashes with young Muslims there: “On the stairs freely. In recent years, starting in 2017, we have built three checkpoints there, the rooms of the mower are called. A young man is stopped on the street, brought to the room and beaten there.”

He added that “the Association for Civil Rights and we on the joint list addressed this issue. We did not respond to this or that. The massive presence of the police is unnecessary and unjustified and is a source of friction and violence. “It starts automatically and then it develops. The police want to mow the form for young people.”

Afterwards, the Knesset member spoke about the state of the joint list in the Knesset of Israel, where it became the language of the scales: “I do not boast about it. There is no doubt that a political reality of 60-60 created a new strategic situation for us, our situation is better than two weeks ago. “It’s just wrong. An elected public that does not act takes advantage of political opportunities for the benefit of its public and makes a mistake.”

Despite this, he stressed that “this government for us is a change for the worse. On the Negev issue there are 10% more houses destroyed than in the previous bad government. More budgets for settlements. More invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Rising prices and cost of living. No political process. We recommended Yair “Lapid to the president only to stop Benjamin Netanyahu and we succeeded. If we had not recommended, Netanyahu would have taken over the organizing committee.”

“Throughout the term, whenever the Likud and the right filed a no-confidence motion, we actively voted against. If tomorrow the Likud votes a constructive no-confidence motion in the government and Netanyahu, the candidate for the new, joint prime minister, will vote against,” Tibi clarified.

According to the veteran Knesset member, the Likud will not submit a proposal to dissolve the Knesset despite the new situation: “It has no 61. There is no doubt that the coalition has disintegrated, but. “A bill that will come up. We will study it, consider it, and then we will respond. We also have proposals and important things for Arab society.”

Finally, he asked to address the issue of crime in Arab society: “Yoav Saglovitch is making an effort and we are in contact with him. There is no Arab MK who does not want the police to fight the criminal organizations. “How do you want us to collect weapons?” Since when does this thing depend on our position against or for the occupation? That’s an arrogant thing to say. Are we told that they are doing us a favor as a country that collects weapons? “
