Homage to Dr. Ahmad Sa’ad

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Israel expresses its profound grief at the passing away today (Monday, April 19), of comrade Dr. Ahmad Sa’ad, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee and Chief Editor of “Al Ittihad”, communist daily Arabic newspaper.

Dr. Sa’ad, a well know journalist and researcher, learned political economy in the former Soviet Union and became a member of the Knesset (the Israeli parliament) in 1996. He was a member of the Knesset until 1999. He was also a member of the Political Bureau of Hadash – the Democratic Front for Peace and Equality.

The Communist Party of Israel salutes the memory of our beloved departed comrade. We pledge to carry forward his cause and work. We convey our heartfelt condolences to his family.
