An article which was published on Thursday in the Shas party’s journal, Yom LeYom, attacked Zionism and Israel’s secular population, claiming that they are to blame for the existence of the Iranian threat.
“Before the national Zionist movement showed up, Jews and Arabs lived in peace. The Arabs are against Zionism and not Judaism,” the article claimed. “They do not mention hatred of Jews or Judaism. They only hate Zionism and Zionists.”
