Ta'al (Arab Movement for Renewal) is an Arab-Israeli political party led by Ahmad Tibi. In the two latest elections to the Knesset the party ran on a joint ticket with the United Arab List; together they won four seats.
The party supports allowing the Arab refugees from the Israeli independence war to return to Israel, a move which if carried out would lead to an Arab majority in the country and its unification with the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as a result. The party also supports the formation of a Palestinian state, despite the fact it is likely to pause a threat to Israel’s existence.
Ta'al is closely allied with Palestinian terrorism, and its leader Ahmad Tibi was a staunch supporter of Yasir Arafat, even though (or perhaps because) Arafat was an unrepentant terrorist until the end of his life. In addition to supporting Arafat, Tibi has also collaborated with the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, another Palestinian terrorist group.
