Israel's Arab MK's Lobby African Nations To Support Unilateral 'Palestinian' Statehood In UN

Nothing like taking advantage of democracy to stab your own government in the back, is there?

Some of the Arab members of Israel's parliament, the Knesset, are doing there very best to undermine the Israeli government's position on a unilateral 'Palestinian' declaration of statehood via the UN.

Knesset members Ibrahim Sarsur and Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al), and MK Hanna Swaid (Hadash) met on Thursday with a dozen delegates from African countries, urging them to lobby their own governments to support the 'Palestinian' UN gambit, in direct opposition to the Israeli government's official stance.

Tibi, who also met with the South African Ambassador in private, said that Thursday's meeting represented only the first steps vis-à-vis foreign delegates: "We are motivated by our convictions. That is the position we present in the Knesset and to foreign diplomats."

One of the characteristics of a representative democracy is that the majority rules,and that the country's leadership uses that mandate to put forth a unified position on foreign policy.

In essence, the position these Arab MK's are pushing amounts to creating their own foreign policy, and one that's hostile to the very government they took an oath to serve.

Not only that, but they're advocating support for the 'Palestinians' breaking the treaties both they and Israel signed as part of the Oslo Accords and the Road Map,treaties for which Israel gave up significant strategic concessions.

In America, members of congress would be sanctioned for this behavior at the least and removed at worst. The Israeli government would be fully justified in removing these members' Knesset immunity to prosecution, taking away their state subsidies and labeling them openly as the hostile fifth columnists they are.

please helps me write more gooder!
