Ahmad Tibi, one of the leaders of the joint list, spoke out against the proud community.
"I'm in love with the words 'Dad and Mom.'"
Recently, there has been a great deal of public criticism of the position of members of the "Religious Zionism" list, including MK Bezalel Smutrich and Noam Ben Gvir, toward the LGBT community. Arabic, explicitly states that it will oppose any bill to promote the LGBT community.
But Smutrich !!

"We are asked in home circles what our position is on LGBT people," Tibi said in an Arabic-language interview. "We are against promoting the LGBT phenomenon. If there is a law to promote LGBT people, I would vote - with all the members of the joint list - against it.
"For example, there was a law proposed by a gay MK from Yesh Atid (Idan Roll), who proposed that instead of 'father and mother' it should be written in official documents 'guardian 1' and 'guardian 2'.
This is a provocative offer, and I told him that.
I told him, 'You will not impose your situation on us.'
I'm in love with the words 'dad and mom'.
The entire list, all of our 15 MKs, voted against the law. "
Tibi added: "If there was a bill on the Pride Parades, or a bill aimed at allowing them to carry out information in schools - I would oppose both."
Asked by the facilitator about his position regarding the demonstration of Arab LGBTs in Haifa in 2019, Tibi said: "I object.
That is why we have never taken part in these demonstrations. "
