Thousands rally in support of Bishara in Nazareth

Thousands of people, including representatives of all the Knesset's Arab parties and his family members, demonstrated in support of former MK Azmi Bishara in Nazareth on Saturday afternoon. Supporters carried posters featuring the former Balad party chairman's portrait reading, "Your spirit and blood have redeemed you, oh Azmi." Bishara recently resigned from the Knesset following reports which have surfaced in the past few weeks that the Arab-Israeli is suspected of aiding Hizbullah during the Second Lebanon War among other allegations.
