Joint List MK Haneen Zoabi rejected an invitation to take part in a Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony claiming in a letter to the organizers that there is a similarity between Nazi Germany in the 1930s and Israeli policies today.

The Arab MK wrote a letter to the organizers of the main ceremony to be held next month at Kibbutz Yad Mordechai. The letter was leaked to the Israel Hayom newspaper and compared the suffering of the Palestinians to the Holocaust.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon is one of the Israeli politicians scheduled to speak at the event. All MKs were invited to take part.
