Azmi Bishara, born 22 July 1956 in Nazareth, Israel), a former member of
the Knesset, the Israeli parliament and founder of the Balad Party, is a
Palestinian intellectual, academic, politician, and writer.
In 2007, Bishara fled Israel and resigned from the Knesset after being
questioned by police on suspicion of aiding and passing information to
the enemy during wartime, contacts with a foreign agent, and receiving
large sums of money transferred from abroad. Bishara has denied the
accusations. In February 2011, the Israeli parliament passed the
so-called “Bishara bill”, and later voted to strip Bishara of his
parliamentary benefits, including his pension of NIS 7,228 per month he
received as former Knesset member.
Bishara has written extensively on various topics. He currently is the
general director of the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies. He
currently lives in Qatar. In Israel, he is considered a wanted fugitive.
