Hadash-Ta’al MK Aida Touma-Sliman says that despite Hamas’s actions, the terror group is still “part of the Palestinian people,” in an apparent reference to the massacre terrorists carried out on October 7.

Touma-Sliman answers a question from an audience member at the left-wing aligned Rosa Luxemburg Foundation conference in Berlin, who asks the Israeli-Arab lawmaker how it is possible to have peace while Hamas exists.

While she says she doesn’t compare with Hamas’s actions, she says “there are people among the Jewish society, the Israeli society, that is terrorizing people every day, that are committing violence in the West Bank, that are committing horrors, and nobody is asking what we are going to do about them,” referencing settler violence in the West Bank.

Her answer draws a round of applause from the auditorium.
