A Dubai newspaper reports that a Palestinian delegation (including Arab Knesset member Ahmed Tibi) has left for France and Belgium to convince members of the European Parliament that there really was a massacre in Jenin (details).

If Tibi and his fellow Arab Knesset members focused on things like alleviating unemployment and improving infrastructure for Arab Israelis, they could have significant leverage in the government. By doing this kind of thing, they guarantee themselves the contempt of the average Israeli and permanent exclusion from the governing coalition.
