MK Ahmed Tibi (Ta’al) was scheduled to give a speech Wednesday at the tomb of late Palestinian Liberation Organization chairman Yasser Arafat in Ramallah at a ceremony marking seven years since his death. Also speaking at the ceremony will be Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

In September, Tibi came under fire in the Knesset for joining Abbas's delegation to New York for the UN General Assembly. Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said at the time, "In the Knesset, anyone can say their opinion, even if we don’t like it, but it cannot be that a Knesset Member can join a delegation that seeks to harm Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.”
