“MKs from the Left are actually those who wish to privatize the suffering and disconnect the cause from the effect … The responsibility for the suffering of the women in the Gaza Strip lies solely with Israel. After Israel destroyed the infrastructure and the agriculture in Gaza, it dictates to the people there how and where to eat,” she added in rage.

Zoabi went on with her charge. “You all should be boycotted. The people in Gaza are refugees, their land is in Israel. Those murdered by the soldiers are not being accounted for. Democracy is a nightmare in the Knesset,” she accused.

Palestinian lecturer shot dead in KL

Mazlan said the lecturer had also served as an imam at a mosque near the condominium where he had lived with his wife and three children.

Mazlan said a recording of a closed-circuit television camera near the scene showed the two assailants waiting for about 20 minutes for the lecturer to emerge from the condominium.

“We believe the lecturer was their target because two other individuals walked by the place earlier unharmed. We will view the recordings of all the CCTV in the area to identify the suspects and get the registration number of the motorcycle,” he said.

He said the police were looking into the motive for the killing from all angles, including the possible involvement of Daesh terrorists.
