Former Hadash head Muhammad Barakeh, who is currently the leader of the Arab Higher Monitoring Committee, said on Sunday at a meeting to protest the banning of the Islamic Movement that this coming Saturday there will be a world day to address Arab Israeli rights in 30 countries.
“We are widening and continuing the international struggle against racist discrimination,” Barakeh told the Jerusalem Post after the press conference.
The banning of the Islamic Movement and its organizations and charity NGOs “is not just a local issue.”
The crackdown against the Islamic Movement will not end with them, but “will eventually target everyone,” he said, adding that if we don’t stand up for our rights today, tomorrow it will get worse.
Barakeh also criticized the proposed NGO transparency law.
Barakeh spoke at a press conference at the Sokolov Journalists House in Tel Aviv with the leaders of several Islamic Movement organizations that have been outlawed by the government.
