Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Thursday personally expressed his gratitude to hundreds of Israeli Arabs and left-wing Israeli Jews who demonstrated at the Erez Crossing on Gaza's northern border against the continued embargo against the terrorist-ruled territory.
Haniyeh addressed the crowd by calling the cellphone of Israeli Arab MK Taleb A-Sanaa, who led the protest. The Hamas leader said his group was proud of the "Palestinians" living within Israel's sovereign borders and that they would soon "overcome the occupation" and "meet at the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, which will remain Arab and Muslim."
The Israelis in attendance waved Palestinian flags and denounced what they called Israel's "war crimes" against the residents of Gaza.
Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch demanded that Sanaa be charged with supporting a terrorist organization for allowing the leader of Hamas to address Israelis via his cellphone, which is paid for by the State of Israel.
