Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli Likud MK Oren Hazan, currently running for reelection under his Tzomet party, issued a campaign video in which he is seen shooting Arab MK Jamal Zahalka to death.
The clip features a scene from the Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” with Hazan and Zahalka’s heads replacing those of two of the movie’s characters. After “Zahalka” says he prefers to die rather than sing the Israeli anthem, Hazan shoots him several times.
“If you want to die, die, don’t threaten,” he quips.
Zahalka said he is filing a police complaint and the Central Elections Committee for incitement to murder. He has also appealed to social media companies to remove the clip.
“In Hazan’s video clip, he is seen playing the role of the ‘Ugly,’ and that is truly the description he deserves,” said Zahalka. “But this is not a movie, instead it is a call for murder. In an atmosphere which fuels incitement against the Arab public and its representatives, this is dangerous – very dangerous,” said Zahalka.
“Oren Hazan, in addition to his being a terrifying racist, has proven to us time after time how low he is ready to go in order to win a few votes while fueling hatred of Arabs,” Haaretz quoted a spokesman for Zahalka. He described the video as the latest one in a long series of incidents of anti-Arab racism: “This disgusting video is just one example of many,” he said.
