Arab MK's life threatened after IDF 'Nazi' comments
United Arab List leader Talab al-Sana blames right-wing politicians for inciting hatred after anonymous fax says 'you're dead'.
Talab al-Sana, a Knesset member for the United Arab List, said on Monday he had received death threats apparently from members of the public angered by his reaction to Israel's raid on a Gaza-bound aid convoy.
Sana's office received an anonymous fax message reading "you're dead". The MK also lodged a complaint with Knesset authorities after suffering verbal abuse as he entered the parliament building in Jerusalem.
Last week the UAL party leader caused anger among Israelis when he compared navy commandos to Nazis after an IDF raid on the 'Mavi Marmara', a Turkish protest ship, left nine activists dead.
In response to the threats, Sana accused the political right-wingers of inciting hatred. Sana said the atmosphere in Israel reminded him of the eve of the assassination of Yithak Rabin, a prime minister gunned down by a Jewish extremist in 1996.
"Rabin fell victim to the Right and to its thoughtless campaign of hatred," Sana said.
He added: "The nation faces a leadership crisis and the public is venting its anger on the [Arab] minority in its midst. This process has happened in other countries, where right-wing fascist extremists have exploited the mood of crisis to take control of government."
"We won't be a punching bag for anyone who is frustrated with the state," Sana said.
Sana's comments came as a Knesset's committee on Monday recommended revoking the parliamentary privileges of Haneen Zoabi MK, who was aboard one of the flotilla ships during the raid last week..
