Lawyer for Corrie Family on PA TV: Nazi Germany’s Founding was Legal but Israel’s Founding was Theft

Yesterday, an Israeli court ruled that Rachel Corrie’s death was a “regrettable accident,” but that Rachel Corrie “chose to put herself in danger.” Rachel Corrie was killed when she was run over by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza, at a time when Israel was working to curb terrorist activity in the area. Corrie’s family sued Israel for “wrongful death.” The family’s Israeli Arab lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said in a statement to the press:

“It’s a black day for activists of human rights and people who believe in values of dignity. We believe this decision is a bad decision for all of us – civilians first of all, and peace activists.”  [NY Times, August 28, 2012]

Palestinian Media Watch is releasing a statement made by the Israeli Arab lawyer last month that shows his attitudes towards Israel in general.

In a Palestinian Authority TV interview, Abu Hussein said Israel’s founding was worse than the founding of Nazi Germany because “Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law for a short while,” whereas “the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft.” He also called Israel a “giant monster” and indicated that people should take action against Israel: “We all want to step on its head, but talking is not enough. Everyone has their role.”
