Following two incidents of support and appreciation for convicted terrorists held by the Balad party, today (Sunday) the director general of the National Union Party, Yehuda Wald, addressed the Attorney General, Avichai Mandelblit, demanding the immediate opening of a criminal investigation against Balad.
In his letter, Wald referred to the publication that Yishai Friedman first brought on social media about the participation of MK Sami Abu Shehadeh and former Balad chairman Zahalka, in an event honoring the released security prisoner, Anis Spori, who was in prison for planning to carry out attacks.
In addition, the Balad party published a greeting to Spori. In the post, the party praises Spori and describes him as a “hero”. Balad members even wish for the release of all the “heroic prisoners”. “A knee was never bowed,” the party said in a statement.
It was also revealed that another tribute event on behalf of Balad was held for the released prisoner Zahar Ali, from the village of Kawkab al Hija in the Galilee. Zahar Ali contacted Hamas in order to carry out suicide bombings in Israel. D. awarded him a certificate of appreciation.
In his letter, Wald writes, “It is clear that issuing certificates of appreciation to convicted terrorists for plotting to murder Jews has the potential to support and encourage the two current terrorists to continue such terrorist acts. More than that and much more serious. It also encourages potential killers, knowing that they will be miraculously honored and honored – only “thanks” to the fact that they will murder Jews. And to fuck and foam.
These acts join a series of incidents and statements that support terrorism and undermining the Zionist enterprise by a party in the Knesset of Israel, which constitutes a serious violation of the State of Israel. “And demands” in light of the above, I ask you to order a police investigation into the matter. ”
