Balad MKs Jamal Zahalka and Haneen Zoabi participated in a moment in silence for the Gazan victims of Operation Pillar of Defense, at a meeting of their party’s leadership in Nazareth on Saturday.

At the event, Zahalka and Zoabi were chosen as the party’s top two candidates, followed by Basel Ghattas, who is expected to replace Druse MK Said Nafa in the next Knesset.

“Israel is breaking international law in Gaza, all for the sake of [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu’s election campaign,” Zoabi complained.

Not to be outdone, MK Taleb a-Sanaa’s Arab Democratic Party was addressed by one of the leaders of Hamas via video-conference at a party meeting Saturday. Sanaa was reelected as the party’s representative on United Arab List-Ta’al.

United Arab List-Ta’al head Ibrahim Sarsour wrote a letter to US President Barack Obama Saturday, asking him to intervene to end what he called Israel’s aggression in Gaza.

Hadash held an anti-war rally in Nazareth, which according to organizers attracted 1,500 people.
