A prominent Arab member of the Israeli legislature who fled to Egypt last month amid a criminal investigation has quit his post. Member of Knesset Azmi Bishara, one of the nation’s most prominent Israeli-Arab politicians, was reportedly under investigation for possible treason and corruption over his alleged ties to Arab governments. In an earlier trial, Bishara was acquitted of having illegal contacts with Syria. From exile, Bishara said he did not regret his decision to leave. “I am not an Israeli democrat,” he said. “I am a Palestinian Arab democrat.”
