Israeli Deputy Knesset Sami Abu Shehadeh said that the so-called new Israeli government that supported the march of the flags is a “sick mentality and psyche that wants to torture, abuse, insult and provoke the other people.”
Abu Shehadeh added to Al Jazeera Mubasher, “Natural countries do not need to celebrate the occupation of other peoples.”
Abu Shehadeh asked, “What does the flag march mean? This is a march to celebrate the occupation. This is a sick mentality in Israeli society as a whole, and some settlers do not have, as some claim.”
He added, “This is a march that was supported by the Israeli government and the police, and the so-called new government supported this march, and this is a sick mentality and psyche that wants to torture, abuse, cover up, insult and provoke the other people.”
Regarding whether Netanyahu’s departure will involve the extreme right, Abu Shehadeh said, “He judges matters by their results. What matters now is that the Israeli left brought a prime minister who was the head of the most powerful Israeli settlement institution, Naftali Bennett, and this is the first time since the establishment of Israel that there is a prime minister of these settlers with this racist mentality. Right-wing fascism.
