MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) should have had been arrested for treason a very, very long time ago. Her anti-Israel outbursts and ideology are totally incompatible with being a free citizen in the State of Israel and even more so serving as a Knesset Member. Anyone, Jew, Arab, diplomat, journalist, academic et al who justifies Arab terrorism for any reason should be arrested and or deported depending on whether they are Israeli or not.
Their ideology is no less immoral and dangerous to Israeli security as Nazism.The kidnappers of three yeshiva students last weekend are not terrorists, MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) said Tuesday."They're people who don't see any way to change their reality and they are forced to use these means until Israel will wake up a little, until Israeli citizens and society will wake up and feel the suffering of the other," Zoabi said in an interview on Radio Tel Aviv, adding that the kidnappers live under occupation.
"So an Israeli MK is openly justifying the kidnapping of Israeli boys?" the interviewer, Sharon Gal, asked.
"I'm not surprised at all," she responded. (Jerusalem Post)
The State of Israel should show more confidence and determination and stop being so dangerously tolerant of anti-state views.
I'm glad that the Arab terrorists and their supporters are now being punished with force in an attempt to convince them to free the Jewish teenage victims. Honestly, I have no doubt that if we had been consistently more firm in handling all sorts of terror acts and statements, we'd all be a lot safer and the boys would not have been kidnapped.
Your everyday ordinary Arab on the street will do whatever he/she thinks will give him the safest, least harried and dangerous existance. Because they are more afraid of their fellow Arabs, the terrorists, it's rare to hear an Arab whether Israeli citizen or not dare, risk death by saying something anti-terrorist.
Listen to this young Arab, a cousin of MK Zuabi in his amazing trilingual statement.
Now Mohammad Zoabi's life is in danger for saying what he believes that Israel is a good democratic country and the kidnapped teens must be freed. May stay strong and healthy and alive. May he lead his people to a true peace with Jews and Israelis.
