The Arab members of the Israeli Knesset have been invited to visit Britain's Parliament and meet with the lawmakers of Westminster.
One would assume that this would be an official diplomatic visit and meeting of Parliamentarians with the Israeli delegation representing a strong minority of the countries citizens. Perfectly normal and acceptable protocol, even if the visitors will spend a great deal of their official meetings decrying the racist and anti-democratic nature of the Jewish state.
While it is acceptable that elected politicians should champion the cause of their constituents there is a deep undercurrent of dubious loyalty to the state by many of the Arab members who sit in Israel's Parliament.
Many have met with leaders of regimes considered as Israel's enemies. Others have made inflammatory speeches condemning the Jewish state and identifying with Palestinian cause. One in particular, Haneen Zuabi, participated in the recent provocative anti-Israel flotilla. All identify themselves as Palestinians first and Israelis as an afterthought to protect their diplomatic immunity.
Their visit to Britain's Parliament on 28th July 2010 gives British MPs, who are strong on true democracy and loyalty to the state, a golden opportunity to expose the duplicity of those who insert themselves inside the democratic process with the intention to destroy the state from within.
They can uncover the real political intent of these parliamentarians with the following series of questions:
1. DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF AN ISRAELI, OR A PALESTINIAN?
Fact: Those born after 1948 were born in the State of Israel. Therefore, Israeli should be the answer.
2. IF YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A PALESTINIAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING SERVING IN THE ISRAELI PARLIAMENT?
The answer will undoubtedly be that they are there to represent the Israeli Arabs - but they are ISRAELI Arabs, not Palestinian.
3. IF YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF PALESTINIANS, WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A PALESTINIAN STATE WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO SERVE IN THE EXISTING ISRAELI KNESSET, OR THE NEW PALESTINIAN PARLIAMENT?
The answer of most will be to continue to sit in Israel's Knesset.
Ii is certain from the passionate identification of Arab Knesset members with the Palestinian cause that this is their over riding political agenda, and attending to the needs of their constituents is a tool that keeps them entrenched in the Knesset as part of Israel's democratic system.
The answers to the earlier questions should begin to give British parliamentarians an indication of the dubious loyalties of the Arabs who sit in the Knesset.
The answer to the third question should start alarm bells ringing in a Parliament that holds firm to the principle of absolute and unflinching loyalty to the state by elected politicians.
There is nothing wrong in an Israeli Arab, loyal to the State of Israel, having sympathy and support for the Palestinian cause, as long as the Palestinian cause is not the destruction of Israel.
It is to be admired that Knesset members are active in advancing the condition of their constituents.
This is no different to Jewish MPs in Britain's Parliament supporting Israel in its struggle against terrorism and in its search for peace, yet representing the interests of their electorate to the best of their ability.
Sensitivity, however, demands that any Parliament be aware of seditious elected ofiicials who are hacking away at the columns of democracy from within with the ultimate goal of bringing about the eleimination of the state and replacing it with a regime with which they openly identify.
It cannot be, for example, that a member, sitting in Westminster, has a prior loyalty to an entity or regime that calls for the elimination of Britain, or desires replacing the existing status quo with a regime with whom they openly espouse.
This would be considered at minimum disloyal, and possibly treasonous.
Britain is in no danger of being crushed or overthrown by another state or entity. Israel's existential threat is real. It cannot be that the state will be usurped by subversion from within.
Understanding the underlying internal dangers to the democratic State of Israel should lead all caring British citizens to demand that their elected Parliamentarians appreciate the risk that Israel faces as part of being the only true democracy in the Middle East.
Britain's MPs should ask their invited guests from Israel the pertinent questions I outlined in this article.
It is equally important that British MPs receive unequivocal answers.
The anticipated answers should give serious food for thought about the abuse of Parliamentary privilege in a democracy when the insurgents are there to undermine the foundations of the state itself.
