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 New York Times reported that 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.”

Our organization, Palestinian Media Watch released a video of a statement made by the Israeli Arab lawyer last month that illustrates 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.”

Below is the transcript of Abu Hussein’s interview on PA TV, July 2, 2012, with Israeli Arab actor, Mohammad Bakri, who hosts the weekly PA TV show:
Hussein Abu Hussein, Israeli Arab lawyer: “Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law for a short while and it found refuge in the law. [However,] the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft of a nation’s homeland. Actually, the correct and true legal definition of what happened to the Palestinians is homeland theft…  We suffer from a great injustice from the giant monster. This monster attacks us daily and bites into our flesh in the Negev, the Galilee, the Triangle [region in Israel], Jerusalem, and the occupied territories, the West Bank and Gaza. Every day it bites into our body.”
