Attorney General May Indict Arab MK Haneen Zoabi for Incitement

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein is considering indicting Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi for incitement last year when she told demonstrators that Israeli Arabs who are government guards “should be scared of us.”

Zoabi has been arguably the most outspoken anti-Zionist and protagonist in the Knesset, having called Israel a racist state, describing IDF soldiers as criminals and terrorists and generally trashing the government and damning the country that she is supposed to be serving.

She also participated in the IHH-terrorist flotilla in 2010, in which dozens of armed men brutally attacked mostly unarmed Navy soldiers who came on board to prevent the boat from breaking the maritime embargo against Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Zoabi is a member of the Balad party, which produced Azmi Bashara, who fled Israel after being indicted for aiding Hezbollah terrorists in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

A lawyer for the anti-Jewish state Adalah organization, acting on behalf of Balad, wrote Weinstein that Israeli prosecutors do not put public figures on trial for spontaneous comments made in “the heat of the moment” and that Weinstein should explain to the court why he “discriminated” aganst Zoabi.

One of the reasons that other public figures have not been indicted for incitement is because they have not incited against Arabs, although one or two should have been tried and convicted for saying such things as,”Shoot the settlers in their legs.”

No Jewish MK ever has aided or encouraged attacks on Arabs.

But why should Zoabi be tried for incitement?

Here is what she had to say about the three Hamas terrorists who kidnapped and murdered three yeshiva students last June:

 They are not terrorists, even if I do not agree with their actions, these people [the murderers] do not have any escape, any escape.”

On pledging loyalty to Israel, she has said:

When you agree with the ‘Jewish state’ idea, you necessarily agree with the idea of loyalty to this state. Rejecting the ‘Jewish state’ concept will block the road for anyone who demands our loyalty to such a state.”

She also has lumped Tzipi Livni with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avgidor Lieberman, calling all of them “fascists.”

Zoabi also thinks a nuclear Iran is not such a bad idea, saying”

I am afraid of real risk rather than of potential risk. The Iranian bomb was only ‘a potential’ threat. The real danger was the IDF… It is more dangerous to the world, more dangerous to everyone, more dangerous to the Palestinians, to Israelis, to have Israel as the only powerful state…The Israeli violence of the army is an outcome of Israel’s convenient feeling that no one will restrict her.’

Weinstein actually is wrong to even to think about putting her on trial for incitement.

She should be tried for being a traitor.

Haneen Zoabi Instigates on Temple Mount – Invokes Holocaust [video]

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) continued her tirades against Israel, this time, on a video captured on the Temple Mount. Zoabi is apparently trying to instigate a reaction from some Border Police – who are clearly very well disciplined to not react.

Not getting a reaction from the first part of her bleating tirade, Zoabi then moves onto the Holocaust and says, “They killed 6 million of you, why?”, implying Israel is racist and didn’t learn the lessons of the Holocaust.

One can possibly consider it a step up that Zoabi actually acknowledges there was a Shoah.

In July, Zoabi was suspended from participating in Knesset debates by the Knesset Ethics Committee after she stated that the terrorists who killed Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Fraenkel were not terrorists. She is also under investigation for accosting a policeman in Nazareth.

In 2010, Zoabi participated on the Mavi Marmara flotilla to Gaza, in which IHH terrorists injured IDF soldiers legally boarding the boat.

Zoabi is a member of the Balad party in the Knesset. It’s founder, former MK Azmi Bashara, is on the lam in an Arab country, following a police investigation into his foreign contacts, and accusations of allegedly aiding the enemy (Hezbollah) during wartime, passing information on to the enemy and contacts with a foreign agent, as well as laundering money received from foreign sources.

הרי יש מי שעשה בכם את זה לפני עשרות שנים. יש מי ששלט בכם ודפק אותכם, לפני עשרות שנים.
לא למדתם את הלקח.
מה הלקח מההולוקוסט?
אל תרצח ואל תהיה גזען.
נכון?
נרצחו לכם 6 מיליון.
למה?
ולאחרים גם מיליונים שאתם שוכחים

There’s someone who did this to you 10s of years ago. There someone who ruled of you and destroyed you.
You haven’t learned the lesson. What’s the lesson to be learnt from the Holocaust?
Don’t kill and don’t be racist.
Right?
They killed 6 million of you.
Why?
And also millions of other that you’ve forgotten about.

Zoabi Sings Palestinian Authority Anthem at Hamas ‘Victory’ Rally

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi and her Balad party colleague Jamal Zahalka belted out the Palestinian Authority national anthem at a “victory” rally in support of Hamas near Haifa on Friday.

The two legislators from the same party that bred the traitor and former MK Azmi Bishara, indicted for spying for Hezbollah before he fled the country, told the rally of approximately 2,000 people that they support the “resistance.” United Arab party MK Ibrahim Sarsur, another Fifth Column legislator, also was present.

Palestinian Authority flags were prominent, and a moment of silence was held for Gaza killed in the Operation Protective Edge counter-terror campaign.

The event at the Kabul Regional Council was organized by the Monitoring Committee of the Israeli Arab Leadership, which actively backs Hamas and promotes the idea of the Jewish State of Israel being “replaced with a bi-national state.”

The paper states that the Arab public is willing to see Israel as a ‘joint nation’ for two peoples, but does not recognize Israel’s Jewish character.

Zoabi never missing the opportunity to use Israeli media to show everyone how much she hates Israel, told Channel 2 television that the “resistance” will stop when there is no “occupation.”

She said she couldn’t care less about charges that her constant encouragement of violence is incitement because it is the “right of Palestinians” to fight against the “occupation,” the magic word that justifies anything and everything that can lead to the end of Israel as a Jewish state.

Yisrael Beitenu MK Alex Miller responded that he thinks that Zoabi should be placed in a mental institution, but why should she be allowed to drive crazy people even crazier when she can test the limits of Israel’s sanity?

The poor woman has complained of being persecuted mercilessly for her racism, but don’t forget that the end justifies the means when it comes to backing the “resistance,” one of those non-violent words for violence that Zoabi said she opposed.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein wants Zoabi indicted for her having called Israeli Arab police officers “traitors” and urging people to spit in their faces.

Zoabi and her two Balad party companions recently traveled to Qatar to visit Bishara, who received money for handing over information to Hezbollah while the terrorist organization was pounding northern Israel with missiles in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

Zoabi lives in Nazareth. She is an Israeli citizen. She serves in the Israeli Knesset. God willing she also will serve time in an Israeli jail.

Court Lets Arab MK ’Mavi Mamara’ Zoabi Off the Hook

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Israel’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by nationalists Michael Ben-Ari, a former Knesset Member, and Itamar Ben-Gvir, to demand criminal charges be filed against MK Haneen Zoabi for her participation in the IHH terrorist-backed Mavi Mamara flotilla in 2010.

Ben-Ari and Ben-Gvir took their case to the court after government prosecutors decided not to indict her. They noted that the court did not ask to review all of the evidence before deciding against the appeal.

This is the second time the court has stepped up to bat for Zoabi. The Central Election Commission last year decided that Zoabi’s activism on the Mavi Mamara precluded her from running for election in the Knesset. The court overruled the decision.

MK Haneen Zoabi of Mavi Marmara Banned from Knesset Bid

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) has been banned from running for the 19th Knesset by the Central Elections Committee, which censured her for supporting terrorism and for denying Israel’s identity as a Jewish and democratic state.

Zoabi will appeal the decision.  If the appeal is rejected, the Arab party Balad will boycott the upcoming elections.

Zoabi’s name became infamous in Israel after she took part in the attempted illegal invasion of secure waters by the Mavi Marmara, a 2010 Gaza flotilla sent from Turkey which attempted to kill Israeli navy soldiers who boarded the ship in accordance with Israeli law.

When Zoabi returned to Knesset after the event, legislators erupted as she was brought to address the floor.  Outraged, Yisrael Beytenu MK Anastasia Michaeli attempted to prevent the speech with her body.  Indignant outcries gushed out of MKs Eli Aflalo (Kadima), Miri Regev (Likud), and Yoav Hasson (Kadima), and the floor descended into pandemonium.

Zoabi’s disqualification will automatically be brought to an appeal before the High Court of Justice. If her appeal is rejected, Balad plans to boycott the upcoming election. The only individual disqualification to be upheld by the court was that of Rabbi Meir Kahane in 1988.

Proponents of Zoabi’s disqualification, MKs Danny Danon (Likud), Arieh Eldad (Strong Israel), David Rotem (Yisrael Beytenu), Ofir Akunis (Likud), and Michael Ben-Ari (Strong Israel) presented before the committee, and further recommended that Balad and another Arab party, UAL-Ta’al, be included in the ban.

They cited Article 7A of the Basic Law which forbids candidates from rejecting Israel Israel as a Jewish and democratic state, inciting to violence or supporting enemy state or terrorist organization in violence against the State of Israel.

The petitions against Balad (13 for disqualification, one abstention, 16 against) and UAT Ta’al (6 in favor, 7 abstaining, 17 opposed) were rejected.

Zoabi’s disqualification passed with 19 in favor, 1 abstention and 9 opposed.
