It's not that easy to say good-bye to Azmi Bishara. The guy seem to hold many grudges against us. Why can't we just say 'shalom/salam' to each other and forget about each other's existence for good ? :(
Balad chairman Azmi Bishara, who left Israel two weeks ago before announcing his plans to resign for the Knesset, attacked the state of Israel on Friday, saying that "it was unable to rise to the challenge he posed to its Jewish nature and to Zionism."
"We (Arabs) are the original owners of this land," he told A-Shams Radio. "They want us to act like guests in our own country and to prove all the time that all is well. All is not well. We are Palestinian Arabs, the children of this land and we will act in a manner fitting for a people who oppose occupation and aggression."
Bishara went on to say that Israel could not stand the solidarity he had shown with the Lebanese during the recent war.
"I am more democratic, liberal and left-wing than they [Jewish Israelis] are," he added.
Bishara reiterated that he planned to resign from the Knesset and said that he did not intend to return to Israel in the near future. He refused to reveal his current location.
