Haneen Zoabi is a former MK who is virulently opposed to both a two state solution and Israel as a Jewish state.
In 2015, she falsely accused Naftali Bennett of being proud of killing Arabs. In the last week, that lie has been repeated by Naz Shah MP in the House of Commons; by model Bella Hadid on Instagram and by Qatari-owned Al Jazeera.
Inevitably, when the lie involves the Prime Minister of Israel allegedly glorying in killing non-Jews, it rapidly becomes an antisemitic trope. It is not just a lie about a politician: it is used, as medieval blood libels were, to demonise Jews, as well as to incite hatred of Israel.
Predictably, the usual suspects among antisemitic groups in Scotland have been quick to jump on the bandwagon, spreading lies to their followers. What did Naftali Bennett really say? “In the course of my military service, we eliminated many terrorists.” That’s it. He just did his job. Check out the video below (in Hebrew, with subtitles).
