‘Not My Place to Tell Palestinians How to Resist Israel,’ Arab MK Says

The Jerusalem Post reports:

The most senior Arab lawmaker in the Knesset told a Saudi-owned satellite television station on Friday that “it’s not my place to tell the Palestinian people how they should resist” Israel.

Ayman Odeh, the chairman of the predominantly Arab Joint List faction, told Al Arabiya television on Friday that “a popular intifada is most beneficial for the Palestinians.”

The Haifa-born parliamentarian refused to condemn the recent wave of stabbings, car rammings, and shootings that have claimed the lives of dozens of Israeli soldiers and civilians in recent months.

Odeh told Al Arabiya that “we must examine our history and the history of other nations in order to decide upon a strategy.”

“There’s no doubt that the popular, grassroots intifada is the most beneficial for the Palestinian people, but I don’t think it’s my place to tell the people how to resist,” he said.
