Should the State Protect the Scoundrel?

How does one refer to a member of their national parliament who constantly praises their nations worst enemies, makes excuses for every crime perpetrated against the citizens of the nation, demands the nation surrender granting every last complaint and answer for every recrimination, and goes so far as to stand and enjoin with the enemies’ combatants and lawless terrorists whenever they assault the nation? What does the nation owe this member of their parliament when they praise and excuse agents of an enemy entity giving them comfort and praise for a kidnapping of three innocent school boys. How should a nation treat a member of their parliament who has praised every attack, celebrated every mass murder of the people of the nation and attacks other members of the parliament and questioning the rights of that nation to continue to exist? It is obvious; you assign them additional security personnel to assure they are able to continue without fear of reprisals demonizing the nation and its people. The latest detrimental denouncement expressed by this parliamentarian was to excuse the forcible abduction of three teen age school children making their way home from a late day of studies claiming that they had no other way of expressing their desire for a homeland which the nation in whose parliament she sits refuses to dissolve their nation completely and giving the lands to their antagonists who will demand the citizen depart or be murdered simply because they were citizens of the nation of Israel. The parliamentarian is Minister of the Knesset Hanin Zoabi. For the record, Knesset Security Chief Yosef Grif decided on Wednesday to assign a security detail after she received death threats for justifying the kidnapping of three Israeli teenage boys.


This is far from the first time that Knesset Minister Hanin Zoabi has sided with the perpetrators of terror against the nation of Israel. She was aboard the Mavi Marmara during the assault and attempt to break the legal embargo blockade recognized as completely valid by the United Nations. This was not some group of Palestinians who Knesset Minister Zoabi usually joins in their protests and supports their attacks on Israel while condemning any action taken by Israel in their own defense. This was an effort by the Turkish government aiding and supporting the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation (an internationally recognized Turkish NGO) is the front organization which also funds and employs terrorists who in this case planned an assault for when they were inevitably boarded by Israeli forces as they attempted to break the blockade. Knesset Minister Zoabi likely had prior knowledge of the planned ambush which was to be sprung on the defense forces of Israel, the nation on whose parliament she sits, and yet made no attempt to warn her country’s forces of the danger which threatened them. She then defended her actions claiming that she had the right to stand with and even aid the enemies of Israel and her position in the Knesset in no way obligated her to support her nation or its forces and that it was her duty to work to compromise and defeat the nation of Israel and work to support the Palestinians in their eternal mission to liberate all of their invented nation of Palestine from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, the complete and total replacement of Israel by Palestine. This is the member of the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament, who is entitled to additional security personnel to protect her from those she fears wish to harm her.


Knesset Minister Zoabi has taken such positions repeatedly over the years she has served in the Knesset and up until now she has never needed additional security and it is unlikely she actually requires the additional security personnel currently. She probably requested the additional security so as to emphasize that she was in danger from those violent Israelis who desire to deny her a voice in the Knesset. There is only one slight problem with the scenario she wishes to convey is placing her life in danger from an imminent stack from some deranged hateful Zionist; there is next to no possibility of her being harmed in any way by those she defames daily. Was she likely to have received death threats? Possibly, but the question is from whom and from where did these threats originate and were any of them probable to be acted upon? She is as safe as any other member of the Knesset and probably more so. I understand the need for such protection as a precaution but she will now present herself as the victim in order to detract from her instigations against her own nation making them into the violent terroristic entity detracting from the facts that she was protecting and justifying the real terrorists who abducted three innocent teens on their way home from studies. The terrorist who abducted the boys has been revealed most likely to have been Hamas, a recognized terrorist group by the United States, the European Union and the majority of European governments. These are the people worthy of the representation of Knesset Minister Zoabi.


There are those which have received the scorn of Knesset Minister Zoabi such as Minister of the Knesset Moshe Feiglin who she demonized for having the audacity to visit the Temple Mount, the holiest place on the planet in Judaism, how dare a Jewish Knesset Minister visit such a place. There have been attacks on Knesset Ministers in public places which have been reported in the past. One of the more recent came about while a Knesset Minister Elazar Stern toured south Tel Aviv to witness for himself the problems caused by the many illegal immigrants who have taken control of the streets in these neighborhoods making the residents’ lives impossible. Minister Elazar Stern was assaulted after he ignored taunts from two Eritrean illegal immigrants knocking his kipa to the ground. He was not seriously injured and his attacker was arrested by police and he continued his tour but was not awarded with additional security forces. Knesset Minister Moshe Feiglin has been assaulted numerous times upon visiting the Temple Mount and the only steps taken to make his life more secured was the security units for the Temple Mount barred him from making any additional visits to the most holy ground in all of Judaism. But Minister Zoabi is considered to be in danger. Let me make one thing crystal clear, I want no harm to ever come to Knesset Minister Hanin Zoabi under any circumstances and I would protect her to make her inflammatory rhetoric from now to the ends of eternity. I also reserve the right of those who oppose her commentary to express their disgust with her traitorous actions and words, even the right of opposition leader and Labor party leader Knesset Minister Yitzhak Herzog who has finally found an article of agreement with Prime Minister Netanyahu. Perhaps there is hope for Knesset Minister Herzog as a sane and reasoned leader of the opposition which could instigate a period of cooperation towards resolving some of the seemingly intractable difficulties Israel has faced in these turbulent times. One can always hope.
