An Arab MK said that Israel in effect will cease to exist if it does not see the break-in at the embassy in Cairo and sanctions by Turkey as “only the beginning” of a reaction its “crimes.”

Ibrahim Sarsur, of the Ra'am-Ta'al party, charged that Israel’s reactions to the break-in at the Cairo embassy Friday and Turkey’s recent sanctions against Israel “are a death blow to peaceful relations.”

The Israeli legislator from the Israeli Arab community accused Israel of behavior that “damages the Arab people and their national honor” by what he called the “criminal acts" against Turkey that resulted in the “murder of nine Turkish citizens on a peaceful mission.”, referring to last year’s flotilla clash when Turkish terror activists attacked Navy commandos trying to stop the Mavi Marmara boat from breaking the maritime embargo n Hamas-controlled Gaza. A recent United Nations report concluded that Israel's blockade of Gaza is legal.

Sarsur also stated that Israel’s “murder of five Egyptian soldiers in the Sinai” during last month’s terrorist attacks north of Eilat which initiated in Egyptian territory, along with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s refusal to apologize to Turkey for the flotilla clash, are the reasons for what he said are "natural reactions" of Egypt and Turkey.

He added, "The reactions are “the tip of the iceberg, and Israel can expect further such developments from other friendly nations so long as it and its American ally do not learn their lessons and do not change their policies.

"The Jewish-Zionist ideology sees only itself and does not recognize the rights of an independent Palestinian Authority on their ancestral land. Anything is possible, including a Middle East without Israel."

“The first thing Israel and the United States must do is understand that “the future of Israel depends on good relations with the Palestinian people and the Arab world,” according to the Arab MK.

“There is no hope for stability in Israel in the region if the aims of nationhood for the Palestinian Authority are not fulfilled,” he added. Sarsur also took direct aim at President Barack Obama, and called n the United States to “force Israel to obey international law to save itself from a black future.” He warned that if the “rights of the Palestinian people are not restored,” the break-in at the embassy in Cairo and the Turkish sanctions agonist Israel are “only the beginning.”

He stated that, although the break-in at Israeli embassy in Cairo may have been a violation of international law, Israel deserves far worse blame for the “occupation of Al Quds (Jerusalem).”
