Arab MK Praises Pro-‘Intifada’ Hamas Speech
MK Ibrahim Sarsour (Ra’am Ta’al) has come out with yet another virulently anti-Israeli statement. This time, the MK has praised a speech by Hamas head in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh which included a call for “popular resistance” against Israel – a phrase which Hamas uses to refer to terrorism.
In his October 19 speech, Haniyeh slammed the talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority as “harming the cause of resistance,” and called to prepare for “the big campaign in which all of Palestine will be liberated.”
Hamas includes all of modern-day Israel in its definition of “Palestine.”
