....any body home..??
Fresh harvest from the Knesset, just a few hours ago..
Most likely that in a few hours this episode of our democracy will be translated into 120 languages... however I will summarize it for you (nutjobs, feel free to help)
This is happening at the Knesset
The Arab-Israeli Member of the Knesset Mr. Jamal Zahalka from the Balad Party(#) says...
- We [the Palestinian Arabs-Israeli] were here before "you" [the Jews] and we will be here after "you"..
When he is finished addressing the Knesset, Prime Minister Natanyahu asks to answer to Mr. Jamal Zahalka
- Members of the Knesset, I didn't mean to address my self to the Knesset today, however I'd like to answer to Member of the Knesset Mr. Jamal Zahalka. You said you were here before us ...*that is not true*... and you also said you will be here after us.....*well, that is not going to happen*.
(#) For those of you that do not know the Balad Party..
""Balad is a [Arab-Israeli] political party, whose stated purpose is the 'struggle to transform the state of Israel into a democracy for all its citizens, irrespective of national or ethnic identity.' It opposes the idea of Israel as a solely Jewish state, and supports its recasting as a binational state.
The party supports creation of two states based on pre-1967 borders, with the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem to constitute a Palestinian state and the implementation of UN Resolution 194 regarding the right of return to Palestinian refugees.
Balad describes itself as a 'democratic progressive national party for the Palestinian citizens of Israel.'......""
