Female Arab Soldiers: Zoabi Should Go to Gaza
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/7/13 | Elad Benari

Two Arab Christian female Israelis who enlisted in the army this week have criticized MK Hanin Zoabi for her strong opposition to having Arabs join the IDF.

The two told Channel 10 News that MK Zoabi, who has in the past told Arutz Sheva that Israel should “prepare the prisons” if a law requiring Arab Israelis to enlist in the army is passed, does not represent them nor, in fact, does she represent many other Israeli Arabs who want to serve in the army.

"There was some opposition in the village to my enlisting, but I know very well what is good for me to do," one of the newly conscripted soldiers, Naradin Tuma of Jish near Tzfat (Safed), told Channel 10.

"As Israeli Christians who speak Arabic we have the right to serve the country with pride and not be ashamed," added Rajda Jarisi of Nazareth.

Jarisi had a clear message to convey to Zoabi, who has not only objected to Arabs joining the army but was also on the Mavi Marmara ship when IHH terrorists attacked IDF soldiers who boarded it during the 2010 flotilla.

"Any extremist in Israel who thinks he is Palestinian does not have to stay here as far as I’m concerned. He’s a zero," said Jarisi. "People like Zoabi should go to Gaza, where they will be welcomed with open arms."

Jarisi criticized Zoabi over her objection to Arab Christians enlisting in the IDF, saying, "Who gives her the right to speak in our name? Who gave her permission? She’s an Arab, I'm not an Arab. I am an Israeli. If she wants, I'll send her a draft notice.”

Much more worth posting about. Right now I'm in Atlanta on family business, can't stay up anymore. But this is priceless.
