**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Muslim Haneen Zoabi isn’t the first Arab member of Israel’s Knesset (its parliament) to call for Israel’s enemies to attack the country. As I’ve noted before, then-MK (Member of Knesset) Azmi Bishara did it (and spied for Hezbollah). But the message here is the omen for the future of the U.S. If you think these elected Muslim officials are any different than the Muslims who run for and hold office here in the United States, think again. They are not. It’s just that the ones here are not in a position, numbers-wise–YET–to make such a bad PR move. We already have a top-ranking Republican in the House, Darrell Issa, who repeatedly praised Hezbollah (which murdered hundreds of Americans) and who did the bidding of the Saudis and Syria’s Assads. He is suspected of being the Member of Congress in surveillance reports, who was communicating with and tipping off Islamic terrorists.
Haneen Zoabi: Portrait of an Uber-Bitch
And as we keep our borders open, allow more and more Muslim immigration and they give birth to more kids, we will have plenty of Azmi Bisharas and Haneen Zoabis. Oh, and by the way, how many Jewish members of parliament are there in any Muslim nation (I think there’s one in Morocco, or was). How many do you think there would be if they called for Israel or America to attack their country? Same number, but none with heads attached. Mark my word, there is nothing to stop a Keith Ellison or a Rashida Tlaib to call for attacks on America, as Ms.
Zoabi is doing against Israel.
MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima [DS: Party]) renewed calls Wednesday to strip MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad [DS: Party]) of her parliamentary immunity, after the freshman MK was quoted in a local newspaper as calling on Palestinians to start a third Intifada against Israel.
Almost exactly a year after she first made headlines as part of a delegation of Arab MKs who visited Libya, Zoabi returned to headlines after telling an interviewer for a local subsidiary of Yedioth Aharonoth that “I hope that [Palestinians] will start a large popular struggle that is political and strategic, similar to the first Intifada and not the second. . . .” “I would like them to initiate a popular struggle against the siege, because occupiers cannot expect to live normal lives.”
In response, Schneller said that Zoabi should be stripped of her parliamentary immunity and tried for calling for rebellion.
“Zoabi crossed the line a long time ago, and democratic immunity cannot be allowed to continue to harm the State of Israel and its citizens,” complained Schneller. “I intend to demand that Knesset Legal Advisor Eyal Inon probe her statements, and if there have in fact been calls to rebellion – to strip her immunity and try her.”
Zoabi is no stranger to such controversy. Last May, following her trip to visit Muammar Ghaddafi, she and the five other MKs who participated in the visit faced unfruitful attempts by MKs to strip them of their parliamentary immunity and try them for visiting an enemy state.
Less than a month later, Zoabi was again the subject of even greater controversy following her participation in the Gaza Flotilla, aboard the Mavi Marmara. Then, as well, MKs called to prosecute her for criminal offenses, but instead made do with parliamentary sanctions.
Yup, this woman is the enemy with in. She’s a Kalbeh [Arabic for dog]. And we have plenty like her on American soil. We’re as wimpy about them as Israel is about Zoabi.
It should be noted that even her critic, Israeli Member of Knesset Otniel Schneller is no hero. I knew him as a kid when he was here in Detroit for a year or more as the leader of Bnei Akiva, the Jewish religious Zionist youth group in which I was involved. But, in recent years, he allied himself with then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and was the architect of a plan to give up Jerusalem to the Palestinian Muslims. I’m glad that plan failed . . . for now.
**** UPDATE: A reader just made this excellent point to me in an e-mail:
Amazing. Israel illegalized Kach [Rabbi Meir Kahane's political party, which constantly won seats in the Knesset] and told Rabbi Kahane to pack up for telling the truth.
Coming on the heels of Obama’s speech today–well, it’s just so appallingly obvious that a civilization unwilling to defend itself against barbarians out of some misbegotten notion will be overrun by the barbarians. The larger question is why those who hail from the worst countries and societies are the most proudly passionate of their crap holes.
Spot on. It speaks volumes about Israel’s weakness that making Kach illegal and taking away Israel’s right to vote for a proud Jewish Israeli, Kahane, was allowed, but they can’t get rid of this vile Muslim Arab traitor.
