All of Israel's Arab MKs Attend anti-Blockade, Pro-Hamas Rally

If it was just anti-blockade, it would be one thing.

But MK Taleb al-Sana of the Islamist/nationalist Ra'am-Ta'al party actually helped Ismail Haniyeh deliver a message to the rally

Some 1,000 people, among them all of Israel's Arab MKs and community leaders, gathered Thursday at the Israeli side of the Gaza border to express solidarity with the residents of Gaza, one year after Israel's offensive there. MK Taleb A-Sana relayed Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's message to the Israeli side via a mobile phone.

During the rally, Israeli Arab MK Jamal Zahalka directed harsh criticism at Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who he said enjoys "classical music and killing children in Gaza."

Zahalka is a member of the nationalist Balad party; but presumably the national communist Hadash MKs were there as well; however, I assume that "Arab MKs" left out the Druze.

Everything else aside, they are doing the best they possibly can to make Yisrael Beitenu more powerful and look correct.
