Zoabi says ‘thousands’ of IDF soldiers are ‘murderers’ like Azaria

Firebrand Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (Joint List) says Azaria is “one of many murderers.”

In a statement after the verdict is handed down, Zoabi alleges that a Palestinian is killed by an Israeli once every 3.6 days.

“Whoever condemns the Azaria murder must condemn the murders by the Israeli army of thousands of babies and women and men and Palestinian youths, an average of a person killed every 3.6 days, and must demand punishment from every soldier who killed a Palestinian,” she says.
