Traitors in our midst - Arab MK advised PA to kidnap soldier

Much of the world accuses Israel of being a 'racist' country, despite the fact that we accept Jewish immigrants of all races and despite the fact that our Arab citizens have more rights here than they would in any Arab country. But every once in a while something happens that makes me (at least) wonder whether we would be better off just throwing all the Arabs out. Yes, even the so-called citizens.

Arutz Sheva is reporting this morning that an Arab Member of Knesset has admitted that he advised the 'Palestinian Authority' to kidnap a soldier. I want to say that again so that it sinks in. An Arab who is a member of the Israeli Knesset (Legislature) has admitted that he advised the 'Palestinian Authority' to kidnap a soldier. Dual loyalty would be an understatement of the problem.

Knesset Member Wasal Taha, corresponding publicly with internet surfers on the Arabic-language IslamOnline site, said he repeatedly advised PA terrorists to battle and kidnap Israeli soldiers.

According to Arutz Sheva:

According to a report in Maariv newspaper today, Taha told surfers on Thursday that he repeatedly advised the PA Arabs to stop shooting and targeting civilians, and to concentrate on IDF targets. An English translation of Maariv's Hebrew translation of Taha's Arabic words:
"We told them more than once that the Palestinians, who are subjected to murder and ongoing crimes on the part of the Israeli army, have two options: One is to explode and kill civilians - and these are much easier operations. The second option is the military option, in the framework of which a military unit from the resistance [i.e., terrorist infrastructures - ed.] is established in order to break into a military camp, clash with the soldiers and battle them and take them and the conquest into captivity."

Taha also had words of advice for the PA on the publicity front, saying that the kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit should not be called "kidnapped" but rather "imprisoned" or "captive." Taha said, "Kidnapping is an act carried out by gangs, terrorists, and the like. But 'captive' means that [it is carried out by] an organized, legitimate group that makes decisions. Israel is trying to present our resistance as something less - as terrorism, murder, and kidnapping - in order that the diplomatic circle will be closed to it."
I have four comments about this:

1. This was in the Ma'ariv this morning, but as of 11:15 neither the Post, nor HaAretz, nor YNet saw fit to put it on their web sites.

2. If advising the enemy isn't treason, I don't know what is.

3. If Shalit is 'imprisoned' or 'captive,' why isn't the Red Cross running to see him?

4. Read the whole thing. (It includes coverage of a bill presented by MK Zevulun Orlev (National Union - National Religious Party) that would negate the Knesset membership of MK's who support terrorists).

Update 11:45 AM

JPost is now reporting this story. HaAretz and YNet still are not.

Thanks for your on-going updates Carl.
Great blog (and yes--I am voting)

Treason--the man should be charged with treason.
I had the honor to visit Israel in 2003 and drove through the country--I saw how well Israeli Arabs live--a fact that the media never mentions.

Nor does the media know their history or they choose to ignore it as they continue to hold up the Palestinians as an abused people.

The only abuse is from their own leadership and the Arab countrys that are home to most.

I hope Israel will wake up and end the crazy notion that giving away land will bring peace.
I also hope that the US will stop juggling the fate of Israel and oil interests.
We are a fickle friend and nothing good will come from it!

Going to agree with bubbi here.

That is abject treason, and the man should not be allowed to serve on the knesset, and be tried on criminal charges.

Treason? Absolutely. I wonder if he can be stripped of Israeli citizenship? Interesting that as he is so anti-Israel he makes no attempt at leaving, and move to an arab country.

IMHO, MK Zevulun Orlev's bill does not go far enough.

If, G-d forbid, anything happens to Gilad Shalit,Taha should be held responsible for his complicity.

Yes, Carl, Israel would be far better off throwing the arabs out of the Jewish homeland. 'So-called' citizens describes them very nicely.
