Tawfik Toubi, who died on 12 March aged 88, was the last surviving member of Israel's first parliament. He came to prominence when he exposed the 1956 Kafr Qasim massacre, when members of the Israel Border Police murdered 49 Arab civilians, including an unborn baby.
Toubi was born to an Arab family in 1922 in Haifa. He was a founding member of the Israeli Communist Party. He served in the Knesset, or parliament, from its establishment in 1949 until he resigned in 1990.
