Newly elected to Knesset Zoabi thinks a nuclear Iran is a good idea to counter-balance Israel, calls Israel an "aggressor state", welcomes Iranian military support to Gaza, insists that Zionism is inherently racist, and wants to eliminate the Jewish and Zionist nature of Israel.
Interviewed in English twice in recent days - in her Knesset office and in a Jerusalem hotel - Zuabi, one of Balad's three MKs and the former director of the I'lam: Media Center for Arab Palestinians in Israel, said Iran's role in Palestinian affairs was "more useful" than that of regimes like Jordan and Egypt, in that Iran stood more firmly "against occupation than a lot of the Arab countries. This is our interest."
She said Egypt and Jordan were scared of a free and democratic Palestinian state.
Queried regarding Iran's quest to manufacture nuclear weapons, Zuabi stated that having Israel as the region's sole nuclear power was disadvantageous. "It would be more supporting me to have a counter-power to Israel," she said. "I need something to balance [Israel's] power." (Jpost)
