Tibi: Lieberman gives Haider and Le Pen a bad name

Israel Beiteinu chair Avigdor Lieberman "gives a bad name" to European nationalists Jorg Haider and Jean-Marie Le Pen, MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) said Thursday. "He brings racism to new heights that even they did not reach," Tibi told foreign diplomats in Tel Aviv. "While European racists Jorg Haider and Jean-Marie Le Pen directed their hate against immigrants, here in Israel an immigrant is directing his racism against the local population," he added.
