BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Arab MK [Member of Knesset or Parliament] Basel Ghattas said this week that threats by fellow Israeli lawmakers to remove his parliamentary immunity will not affect his decision to take part in the Freedom Flotilla III.
The Israeli Knesset Committee reportedly voted in favor Tuesday of stripping Ghattas, a member of the Joint List– the Arab parliamentary bloc that won 13 Knesset seats in Israel’s last election– of his immunity from prosecution for joining the the protest flotilla.
The Flotilla is the third of it’s kind to attempt to access the Gaza Strip by sea since 2010, aiming break the Israeli blockade with a convoy of ships carrying human rights activists, European lawmakers, Ghattas, and others.
Israeli Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev- member of Netanyahu’s Likud party- demanded earlier this week that Ghattas’ immunity be removed if he joined the flotilla.
“We must end the use of the position of MK as a tool to undermine the government. Its time to instill order, and prevent Arab MKs from inciting against Israel,” Israeli news source Ynet reported Regev writing to an attorney general.
Ghattas told Ma’an that Miri Regev’s statement represents Israeli racist rightist parties, saying “let them remove the immunity.”
The MK argued that that taking part in the flotilla is a part of his job. As he was elected on a platform of helping and representing Palestinians, he told Ma’an that “there is no legal reason that they could charge me of anything, and nothing could affect my decision to participate.”
Ghattas added that Jewish activists from around the world, especially Spain, will be taking part in the Freedom Flotilla III in addition to the previous Tunisian President Muncef al-Marzouki, members of the Algerian and Jordanian parliaments and several political and rights figures.
In response to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s vow prevent the flotilla from passing, Ghattas said that the flotilla is peaceful, free of arms, and cannot pose a threat to Israel, adding that the flotilla’s goal is to draw the world’s attention to the blockade and suffering of the Gaza Strip.
Gaza has been subjected to an Israeli blockade for nine years, which includes a complete ban on ships entering or leaving the coastal enclave’s waters.
In May 2010, Israeli forces staged a raid on a six-ship flotilla which ended in bloodshed, claiming the lives of 10 Turkish nationals and sparked a crisis with Ankara.
This week’s outcry by MK Miri against Ghattas mirrored accusations she leveled against MK Hanin Zoabi, also a member of the Joint List and who took part in the 2010 flotilla. Miri argued atthe time that Zoabi was “joining terrorists.”
Ghattas’ resolution to embark on the flotilla comes as several Knesset members have joined in to denounce his decision.
“It is the gravest thing possible that an Israeli MP would join the flotilla whose aim is to help the Hamas terror organisation,” said Israeli Immigration Minister Zeev Elkin from the ruling right-wing Likud party earlier this week.
“Israeli law does not allow anyone to serve in parliament who supports a terror organization,” he railed in an interview with army radio.

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — The prime minister of the Kingdom of Sweden on Friday said that the country would recognize the State of Palestine, becoming the first major Western European state to do so.
Prime Minister Setfan Loefven said during his inaugural address that “the conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law.”
“A two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful coexistence. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine,” he added.
Although more than 134 countries around the world currently recognize the State of Palestine, the majority of Western Europe and North American have refused to do so out of deference to Israel…

Investigation of Marat Musin, a journalist with ANNA News
A week ago, bandits from Daraa city kidnapped 16 Druzes, citizens of Suwayda city. Martial Druzes decided not to lose time and have taken over 170 Islamists among Daraa citizens for an exchange. Bandits were forced to exchange kidnapped people for their comrades. At this point the provocation against Druzes could be considered over. However, today six Druze girls were kidnapped in Damascus. In the evening, one of them managed to make a phone call from her cell phone. Turned out, kidnapped girls were already at the Turkey border that is more than 400 kilometers from Damascus.
Recently, Alawites’ villages were attacked. Taking this fact into consideration a Western policy of civil war initiation in Syria is being traced here. Today they provoke Druzes, tomorrow they will provoke Alawites. Consequently, in the coming days we can expect a major provocation against Shiites or Christians, Ismailis and Kurds, Circassians and Armenians where their population is dense enough.
Large detachments of gunmen are needed to organize such provocations. Few hours ago, they saw a showdown of armed bandits with other group of people near the hotel. They did not hide firearms. Bandits were caring their guns openly, keeping it behind their belts over shirts. Another skirmish occurred in Harasta region.
