Likud MP: the State of Israel must ‘be run only by Jews’

Israeli parliamentarian Miki Zohar, part of the ruling Likud party, has declared that Israel should “be run only by Jews”, in remarks reported by right-wing news site Arutz Sheva.

Zohar, who is the incoming Knesset House Committee Chair, was speaking in relation to criticism from Joint List MK Ahmed Tibi about his suitability for the role, in light of previous racist remarks.

The Likud MK, however, was unrepentant.

“I insist that this state, the State of Israel, be run only by Jews. Arabs are invited to live here quietly without engaging in terror”.

According to Arutz Sheva, Zohar is preparing a comprehensive agenda for his committee.

“The trend will be clear, to preserve the State of Israel and its democracy, with clear principles that I have always advocated, the Land of Israel, the Torah of Israel, and the nation of Israel”.

In October 2017, Zohar told Haaretz newspaper that Palestinians “[do not] have the right to national identity” because they do “not own the land of this country”, adding: “I’m sorry to say this, but they have one conspicuous liability: They weren’t born Jews”.

  2. What a squishy moderate. “Arabs invited to live here” indeed! Your real Zio holds that Palestine should be inhabited by Jews exclusively, and that all the grunting subhuman goyim should be exterminated, or expelled, or sterilized. This cowardly liberal Zohar won’t go far.
