Israeli MK: Obama can go to hell
The Muqata strongly condemns the statements and dangerous rhetoric by an Israeli MK who said, "Obama can go to hell".
Statements made by the MK last night include:
"After the exposure of lies from the US, we must say frankly to Obama: You no longer scare us and you can go to hell."
“Obama cannot be trusted. We knew his promises were lies. The time has come to spit in the face of the Americans.”
"...he is no longer wanted in the Middle East and that he can go to hell"
"...world should persuade the US to change its Middle East policies by any means necessary, including by use of economic pressure.” Source: JPost
While we at the Muqata don't always see eye to eye with President Obama on many issues, this is no way for an Israeli MK to talk about the president of the United States.
We sincerely thank President Obama and our friends in the United States for vetoing the UN resolution (even though it was conditional and not whole-hearted).
There are those that would expect such extremist comments from a graduate of the Right-Wing/Settler Bar Ilan University, as this MK is, but that doesn't excuse such invective language.
We hereby censure Israeli MK Ibrahim Sarsur of the Ra'am-Ta'al party and head of the Southern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel.
Shame on you.
