Israeli Defense Chief Accuses Center-left, ultra-Orthodox Parties of Thwarting ‚Terrorist‘ Lawmaker’s Removal From Knesset

(4.6.2018) Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Monday that the reason lawmaker Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) is still sitting in the Knesset is because members of the center-left and ultra-Orthodox parties refuse to support her dismissal.

Lieberman said he „cannot understand why (Deputy Health Minister) Yaakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism), (opposition head) Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union), and Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid), are supporting this terrorist.“ Lieberman also snapped at Meretz chairwoman Tamar Zandberg, saying: „nobody expects anything else from you.“

Every Day That Lieberman Is Defense Minister

“Every day that Ayman Odeh is not in prison is a failure of law enforcement,” Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said of the chairman of the Joint List, the third largest bloc in the Knesset. Interior Minister Gilad Erdan — who lost no haste in pronouncing Yakub Abu al-Kian, who was shot dead by police in Umm al-Hiran, a terrorist — quickly joined in. He announced that he would ask the attorney general to launch a criminal investigation against Odeh, who cursed out a police officer at the hospital where Jafar Farah, the director of Mossawa Center, the Advocacy Center for Arab Citizens in Israel, was being treated while under arrest in connection to a protest in Haifa.

Israelischer Verteidigungsminister: es gibt keine unschuldigen Menschen im Gazastreifen

In der Praxis läuft Liebermans Haltung darauf hinaus, dass die Palästinenser notwendigerweise Terroristen sind und dass jeder, der gegen die Aktionen der israelischen Regierung protestiert, notwendigerweise Terror gegen sie betreibt.

Wenn es auch in der rechtsextremen Koalition gut ankommen mag, führt jedoch selbst in Israel der Anblick eines Palästinensers, der eine Weste mit der Aufschrift „PRESSE“ trägt und von israelischen Scharfschützen erschossen wird, zu Besorgnis und Unbehagen. Liebermans Argument, dass Sanitätshelfer und Journalisten bekanntlich in „Terroraktivitäten“ verwickelt sind, ist kein gutes Argument, zumal sogar selbst das israelische Militär über den Tod des Journalisten besorgt schien und eine Untersuchung versprach.
