There is a whole brouhaha in the Knesset that almost led to violence.
And who started it? And why?
On Wednesday, Israeli Arab MK Hanin Zoabi and MK Miri Regev of the Likkud party indulged in a verbal clash during a Knesset plenum...

Zoabi boarded a ship that was part of the flotilla carrying humanitarian goods as well as lethal weapons before the bloody raid broke out on Monday.

In a discussion of Israel’s raid on a Turkish-flagged ship attempting to board the borders of Gaza, Zoabi accused the Israeli government of participating in what she called a “pirate military operation.” She continued to press Israeli ministers on why soldiers were ordered to confiscate media cameras and restrict coverage on the nine people killed on the ship.  

As Regev and Zoabi quarrelled in a heated debate, Regev accused Zoabi of being "responsible for a double crime: Joining terrorists, and a moral crime against the state of Israel", according toHa’aretz reports.

Regev continued by mentioning other times when tensions rose between the two MKs, saying: "She sat here over a year ago and pledged allegiance to the state of Israel and its laws." She continued by saying: "I have no intention of stifling free speech, but in the case of MK Zoabi - it is not freedom of speech. The Gaza flotilla was a terrorist flotilla and MK Zoabi needs to be punished. We don't need Trojan horses in the Knesset."

MK Nachman Shai (Kadima) addressed Zoabi in disappointment of the Arab’s participation in what Knesset members have called a sail of terror. He intervened with, "I respect democracy, but an MK cannot participate in such a journey, which is against the law and deifies the country that is mine just as much as it is yours.”

He continued by saying, "I respect your opinions, but it was wrong of you to stand on that ship's deck. It's unacceptable," he added.
Why am I bringing this up now? I watched the whole mess and thought about this woman. What other country would even allow her to be a member of Parliament? What other country would allow her the freedom to feel safe enough to not only do what she did but stand up in the Knesset and voice her poison and not feel any fear of reprisals?

Stupid us. I think she should be tried as a traitor. But, of course she won't and she won't be barred from showing up to work next week and from speaking to the press about how she feared for her life. Bull!

You wanna know who should have feared for their lives? Sadaam's sons-in-law. You remember them? They ran away and spoke to the press. Then, in a moment of insanity decided to believe Sadaam that all was forgiven and that they should come home.

Where'd Daddy, Mama?

Grandpa killed him.

And the world went on.

I guess when you have debts to the Arabs up to here...and you have a President who...never mind.

Ms. go to your mosque and thank your God that you live here.

Stupid wonderful us.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.
