Arab MK Bashes "Zionist Apartheid " in Canada

Member of Knesset Dr. Jamal Zahalka (Balad Party) spoke last week in Canada and stated, "Palestinians have two enemies: Zionism and silence... there are lies and facts -- we tell the truth and the Israelis are lying." He further called Israel "a racist regime of apartheid." His speech was organized by Palestine House, a center located in Canada on March 30th to mark "Land Day." MK Zahalka has been a member of Knesset since 2003. Born in Kfar Kara near Haifa, he earned a B.A., M.A. and Ph.D from Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
