Arab Israeli Member of Knesset Basel Ghattas justified the actions of Palestinian terrorists who had murdered Israelis.

He claimed they had not killed “for criminal reasons or illegally.”

This statement follows Ghattas’s four-month suspension from the Knesset after he and two other Arab Israeli parliamentarians paid a condolence call to families of Palestinian terrorists calling them “Martyrs” during which they observed a minute of silence for the murderers.

Ghattas also claimed Arab MK’s would never obstain from visiting families of “Martyrs’” families and that the minute they did so, they’d have to “vacate (their Knesset) seats, leave the keys, and go home.”
