MK Zahalka on Salah: UK working with Israeli oppression

June 29, 2011 12:36

Following the arrest of the Islamic Movement's northern branch leader Sheikh Raed Salah in London, MK Jamal Zahalka (Balad) on Wednesday said the UK is "cooperating with Israeli oppression."

"The arrest is a blow to the Arab public in Israel, which sees Sheikh Raed Salah as one of its leaders," Zahalka explained. "This is a political and religious figure, and there is no justified reason to arrest him. Instead of the UK supporting the rights of Arab citizens in Israel, they are cooperating in harming them."
