Thousands participated in a demonstration on Friday marking the tenth anniversary of the October 2000 Arab Israeli riots in which 13 Arab Israelis were killed by Israeli security forces.

The Kfar Kanna demonstration was attended by several Arab Israeli MKs, including Haneen Zoabi (Balad) and Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List - Ta'al).

Tibi addressed the crowd at the demonstration, condemning the fact that those responsible for the October 2000 deaths had not been made to stand trial for their actions.

MK Tibi added that the level of racism against Israel's Arab citizens had risen in the last ten years.

"I call on Attorney General [Yehuda] Weinstein to reopen the case and charge the policemen suspected in the killings.  Otherwise, the state is sending the message that it shoots its Arab citizens and that their lives are less valuable because they are Arabs. The ten years of rage and pain for the families and the Arab public constitute a black stain on the life of the State of Israel."
