United Arab List-Ta'al MK Ahmed Tibi slammed the current Likud-lead government, saying it won't be long before the Knesset votes to pass a bill calling for "death to Arabs."

"The country's right wing and new Likud are strangling our lives. It won't be long before they initiate a bill calling for 'death to Arabs,'" Tibi said to an assembly in Ramallah commemorating six years since the death of former PLO chairman Yasser Arafat.

Tibi also criticized Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, calling him "the fascist settler that recently came to my homeland."
