In the latest of a string of controversial actions, Balad MK Hanin Zoabi has written a foreword for a new book by noted anti-Israel writer, Ben White, in which she states that the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria is ‘racist’ and premised on ‘ethnic cleansing’.

In the four-page foreword to the book titled “Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy,” Zoabi insists that Israeli Arabs have a central role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and that they will use their experience with democracy to expose Israel as a “colonialist and racist” regime.

Zoabi refused to comment on the subject, but a colleague spoke of her continued defiance. “She believes in the things she writes and has never tried to hide it . . . She fears nobody and she will continue to express what she believes in at every opportunity.”
