Zionist Union lawmaker slammed for claiming Palestinian stabber is ‘not a terrorist’

The Zionist Union said its MK Zuheir Bahloul’s refusal to characterize a Palestinian who stabbed a soldier in Hebron as a terrorist Thursday does not reflect the party’s values, as politicians in the coalition and opposition, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, condemned the statements.

Bahloul, the sole Israeli-Arab lawmaker in the Zionist Union, refused to use the word “terrorist” to describe the stabber earlier this week, and did not change his mind when he was asked about it on Army Radio Thursday morning.
