Leader of the far-right Religious Zionist party MK Bezalel Smotrich on Thursday threatened to expel an Arab MK and other Muslims who do not accept the rule of Jews in Israel.

Earlier in the day, MK Ahmad Tibi of the Joint List gave an interview with Radio 103FM, during which he was asked his opinion on remarks made by Chief Rabbi of Safed Shmuel Eliyahu, who in 2019 stated: “The land [of Israel] vomits out the Arabs.”

Tibi called Eliyahu “racist garbage”, adding:

“I despise him. A rabbi is not supposed to talk like that, and if a sheikh talks like that about Jews, then he should also be condemned.”

Smotrich jumped to defend Eliyahu on Twitter, stating:

“A true Muslim needs to know that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people, and over time Arabs like you who don’t recognize that will not remain here. Rabbi Shmuel and his multitude of followers, us among them, will make sure of that.”

Tibi responded: “It makes me happy that you won’t be a minister without relying on Arabs,” adding in German: “Du bist ein Rassist (You are a racist).”

Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu’s bloc seeks to mobilize the support of Mansour Abbas’ Arab List to reach a majority of 61 seats to be able to form a government coalition.

  1. 911, Epstein, USS Liberty and ISIS. What PARASITES! They started as IRGUN TERRORISTS and are ISIS today. Learn what our supposed ‘ALLY’ is all about.

  2. Hmmm

    Gosh, what happened to notion that Israel is the “only Democracy in the Middle East”? Obviously they can’t maintain the lie of being a “Democracy” now that there is no possible way for “Jews” to claim they maintain control given they are no longer the majority of the population. (they are now outnumbered by the millions of Palestinians they have conquered but must grant the right to vote)
