MEMRI: Israeli Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi To Palestinians: A Siege Of Israel Instead Of Negotiations; Resistance Instead Of Security Coordination

Israeli Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi To Palestinians: A Siege Of Israel
Instead Of Negotiations; Resistance Instead Of Security Coordination

On July 13, 2014, Israeli Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi published a harshly
anti-Israel article on the Hamas website Felesteen.ps, in which she called
on Palestinians to continue the resistance, to besiege Israel, and to reject
any negotiations with it. It is noteworthy that throughout the article she
puts "Israel" in quotation marks.

The following are excerpts from her article:

"The events [in Gaza] have produced no military results. 'Israel' will in no
way eliminate Hamas, the motives for the resistance, or the motives for
[pursuing] liberation from the occupation. 'Israel' will in no way decide
anything with military force, killing, and destruction. Also, Hamas on its
own will never prevent 'Israel' from deepening the occupation and continuing
the policy of violence and killing.

"The result of this aggression [will ultimately be] that 'Israel' will begin
to realize that there are clear limits to force, and that the primitive
rockets kill not people, but the strategic concept on which 'Israel' has
predicated its security and political situation. The main thrust of this
concept is that with the deadly trinity the siege, the fence, and the
security coordination 'Israel' is reestablishing the situation of 'soft
occupation' and it is precisely this that the Hamas rockets are
eliminating.

"Hamas is [also] eliminating Israel's belief that over the past decade it
has successfully used these three important achievements the fence, the
siege, and the security coordination to control the situation and to
cement a situation in which there is an occupation without an occupier. The
resistance is restoring the Palestinian presence as an occupied [people] to
the Israeli [consciousness] [a presence] that had disappeared from its
reality and its consciousness. The resistance is reminding the Israeli that
he is an occupier, and of the reality that he wishes to forget, so that he
can live in peace and security without being reminded of its existence.

"The cruel aggression of a country that has no policy other than cementing
the existing situation with an ongoing series of crimes and violations
against our Palestinian people is going to end, and so is the rocket fire.
Each side should redraw the rules of the game, which were violated during
the aggression that is, the recent aggression. As part of the prevailing
conspiratorial Arab and international silence, and in light of how
Palestinian officials have been operating up until now, 'Israel' is likely
to conclude that the path [it should take] is one of preparing to [carry
out] another round of oppression, killing, and destruction.

"In order for 'Israel' to declare the end of the option to preserve and
deepen the occupation, and in order for it to declare the end of the
achievements of the criminal trinity the fence, the siege, and the
[security] coordination by means of which it thought to make costly the
occupation that has no presence in Israeli reality, the Palestinians should
declare the end of their own deadly trinity of the [security]
coordination, the negotiations, and the schism.

"We must abandon our own deadly trinity and instead of security
coordination, declare popular resistance; instead of negotiating with
'Israel', besiege it; and instead of splitting, unite."
