MK Hanin Zoabi reacted to the arrest of Islamic Movement head Sheikh Raed Salah on Wednesday, saying, "Instead of the British authorities supporting our just struggle for democracy, freedom and political action, it seems they support the Israeli policies of political persecution against Arabs in Israel."

"The primary source behind the arrest is Israeli pressure and the pressure of Zionist actors inside Britain," she added.

Calling for Salah's release, Zobai continued, "I suggest the British be smarter in their behavior, in everything related to the rights of Palestinians in Israel. We, the Arab leadership, need to act more aggressively in the international area, so that the world understands that the policies of racism and political persecution that the Israeli government carries out against us."
