    Tibi regards himself as indiginous and Lieberman as a foreigner. Is that not "racist" under Tibi's broad definition of racism (that is, everyone not being treated exactly alike in all circumstances without regard to culture or history). When Jews were removed from Gaza, where was Tibi arguing that they should be allowed to remain and should get a fair share of "budget allocation, industry, education, land, religious places, employment." There is indeed a tension between nationalism and the rights of a people on one hand and rights of an individual on the other, Facing that tension and compromising is the essence of peace in the region, but that's not where Tibi comes from. Tibi wants to focus on universal rights and a neutral state when looking for a better place for Arabs in Israel, and wants to focus on "indigenous" rights when convenient, and the contradiction between those two values does not seem to bother Tibi one bit.

    from the article: Tibi: Lieberman is an immigrant who's racist against the native Arabs
