Zoabi complains about incitement? As Danon rightfully said in response, “A person who serves as the Hamas representative in the Israeli Knesset should be sitting in jail and not preaching on the subject of incitement and freedom of expression.”
In yet another story which the world’s mainstream media will ignore, an Israeli Arab Knesset member complained to the police about a right-wing Likud Knesset member, Danny Danon, making a video condemning her. Watch the video here
The Arab MK, Hanin Zoabi, openly opposes the State of Israel, supports Hamas, and a few months ago published an article on Hamas’s website encouraging an Islamist uprising against the Jewish state, encouraging Arab countries to help stoke a “popular uprising” against Israel, halt security coordination with the Palestinian Authority (PA) police in Judea and Samaria, and lay siege to the region. She put the word “Israel” in quotation marks throughout the article, and said: [. . .] we must besiege ‘Israel’ instead of negotiating with it.” Zoabi has said Israel has “no right to a normal life” and Israel should “thank her” for allowing Jews to live in the Jewish State.
Recently, she defended the kidnapping of three Israeli teens, stating that the abduction was a “legitimate” way to “fight the occupation.” She has met Hamas officials, calls the Jewish State a racist notion, and has walked out of the Knesset during the singing of the national anthem. This woman has made statements claiming that the Israel Defense Forces are a greater danger than the possibility of Iranian nuclear weapons, and denied that Palestinians kidnapping Israeli civilians are terrorists.
However, she complained that Danon was committing incitement for releasing a video where he is depicted as a sheriff who locks her up for supporting terrorists. Zoabi complains about incitement? As Danon rightfully said in response, “A person who serves as the Hamas representative in the Israeli Knesset should be sitting in jail and not preaching on the subject of incitement and freedom of expression.”
Imagine a member of Congress praising Al-Qaeda? Absurd. Yet, worldwide Israel is spoken of terribly. The emperor has no clothes.
