Azmi Bishara

Azmi Bishara (Arabic عزمي بشارة, DMG ʿ Azmi Bisara; born July 22 1956 in Nazareth ) is an Arab- Israeli politician.

Bishara was founder in 1976 of the first national Arab Student Union. He was very active against the expropriation of Arab land ownership.

He was elected as Israeli- Arab member of the Knesset in 1996. He founded the National Democratic Assembly, a representative of the Arab minority in Israel and was the leader of this party.

Bishara left Israel in 2007 because he was suspected in the second Lebanon war of espionage and support of Hezbollah, and resigned his Knesset. He moved to Lebanon.
