Calls For Criminal Probe Into Political Terror Plot

According to a Channel 12 report Friday night, MKs Ayman Odeh, Ahmed Tibi and Sami Abu Shahadeh, the heads of the Arab-majority Joint List faction, recently met secretly in Ramallah with the head of PA intelligence in an attempt to influence the results of the Israeli elections. The PA is reportedly pushing to have the Islamic Ra’am party rejoin the Joint List to prevent opposition leader and former prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from winning the upcoming November election.

Such a meeting could be considered contact with a foreign agent, punishable by 15 years in prison according to the Penal Code.

Several Israeli politicians and activists have called on the security establishment to launch a criminal probe against three Arab MK’s for breach of trust and conspiracy against the State of Israel. Among them are MK Bezalel Smotrich, Matan Peleg, Im Tirtzu CEO, and MK Avi Maoz.

Smotrich stated, “The choice [in the elections] is simple – a national government or a government with those allied with Israel’s enemies,” he said.
