Ghattas learned from Zoabi, now Zoabi wants to do it again
On Sunday, I reported that 'Israeli Arab' MK Basel Ghattas plans to join the flotilla of fools that hopes to run the Gaza 'blockade' later this week and establish a sea route for Hamas weapons..@zeev_elkin: High Court backs terrorism supporters - overturned Central Elex C'tee vote 2 ban Zoabi & Ghattas learned he can join flotilla— Lahav Harkov (@LahavHarkov) June 22, 2015
Senior Likud MK Zeev Elkin says that Ghattas learned that there is no treason that is unacceptable for an 'Israeli Arab' MK from Hanin Zoabi, who joined the Mavi Marmara in 2010, and has not lost her Knesset seat, despite an elections committee decision that she be barred from running.
Now, Zoabi wants to do it again. After all, it just wouldn't be the same without her. But she's not coming along anyway.
The Marianne av Göteborg, is set to depart within the next few days. Three or four other ships have plans to join the Gaza flotilla, but only the Marianne av Göteborg is currently approaching Israel.Maybe she's afraid her Knesset immunity won't protect her from IDF responses to an act of war.
Zoabi penned a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, and made it clear that she wants to join the flotilla, however she has decided not to do so because she felt that the last flotilla was not completely effective, stating "unfortunately the Mavi Marmara did not end the blockade in Gaza."
She said that the Mavi Marmara did not succeed 100 percent, and therefore there is a need for more and more flotillas.
Referring to Israel, Zoabi said there will be "a need to prosecute those responsible politically and militarily for the situation in Gaza" if the blockade remains in place.
"Israel is in control of the situation, and is responsible according to international law. Those in Israel cannot expect to live a normal life when the occupation and the siege goes on in Gaza."
