MK Oded Forer (Yisrael Beytenu) has reacted to MK Hanin Zoabi’s (Joint Arab List) recent comments regarding the Jewish People's right to self-determination.
In a speech at Dallas last week, Zoabi said that "the Jews are not a nationality, so we cannot talk about self-determination for the Jewish people."
She did, however, say that "the Israelis, they can have self-determination, but not as a Jewish State, within a secular democratic state."
"I would like to thank Zoabi for finally removing the mask from the Palestinians' ultimate goals," Forer said. "By claiming that the Jewish People have no right to self-determination, she has exposed the lie and fallacy that the conflict is over land or borders."
"Zoabi has finally admitted that her ultimate dream is to destroy Israel in its current form and dismantle it as a Jewish and democratic state."
"Unfortunately, it is clear that until there is an end to this rejectionism there will be no end to the conflict, and Israel needs to act accordingly, with its partners in the US."
