(from Israel National News)
Presenter Oded Ben Ami asked Feigin -- whom he referred to only by his last name -- who he thinks is responsible for the recent wave of violence. A transcription of most of the ensuing conversation follows beneath embedded video (which is in Hebrew, without captions).
Feiglin: I just want to remind you that with the last mosque that was set on fire, it turned out that it was the Arabs from the village itself, at Tuba Zangariya [who set it on fire], so we must not jump to conclusions hurriedly.
Feiglin: Ask the head of the Appointed Council of Tuba Zangariya who estimated with a high degree of certainty that that was the story there.
Feiglin: And it will not end, because this is precisely the conclusion. But with your permission, I would like to ask Ahmed Tibi, who is seated in front of you, and who represents a population from whose midst came most of the most murderous terror attacks in Israel, what he says about this. How can it be that Ahmed Tibi is present here as the man who has been attacked, and not as the man who supports terror.
Feiglin: And this justifies murder, Mr. Ahmed? Does it justify murder?
Ben Ami: Let me just remind you that his name is MK Ahmed Tibi.
Feiglin: Yes, I forgot for a moment.
Tibi: Try not to make wisecracks and let me continue. The attempts to deflect attention, in this debate, too, from the of mosques and the actual occupation, one of whose tools is the settlers – I refuse to accept the attempt by the state or the media or these settlers [to say that] there are good settlers and bad settlers. There is a good army and settlers who oppose it. There is a system of occupation that is the hothouse for these settlers who have burned 9 mosques since the beginning of the year.
This is Jewish anti-Semitism and this man who is seated here is a symbol of the Jewish anti-Semitism.
Feiglin: This is my country and you will not remain in it.
Tibi: You will not decide for Channel 2 whether or not to invite me. I am the homeowner here.
