MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) visited Hebron on Sunday, and was met with cries of
“terrorist” from Jewish residents of the area, led by farright activist Itamar
Zoabi was surrounded by her staff and protected by IDF
soldiers. She said that she did not coordinate her visit with the IDF, but that
they called her office to “establish their presence” and prevent Palestinians
from marching with her.
“Why is she hiding behind the same soldiers she
attacked while she was on the Mavi Marmara?” Ben-Gvir, who also serves as the
spokesman for MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union), asked.
The Balad MK
said she visited Hebron to protest the fact that a street closed after USborn
Dr. Baruch Goldstein killed 29 Arabs praying at the Tomb of the Patriarchs,
remains closed 14 years later.
“First, 29 Palestinians are killed, and
then the entire Palestinian population [of Hebron] is punished,” Zoabi
The government is not only occupying Hebron, but is implementing
apartheid, the MK said.
“There is a new Palestinian generation that is
determined to begin a nonviolent political struggle,” she added.
this way can we break the occupation. My campaign is part of this effort.”
