An Israeli Arab lawmaker is to speak at Israel Apartheid Week. Balad Party member Jamal Zahalka left for Montreal on Tuesday to participate in the weeklong event that aims to “forward the analysis of Israel as an apartheid state and to bolster support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign,” according to the event’s Web site. The Jerusalem Post reported that legislator Otniel Shneller of the ruling Kadima Party demanded that Attorney General Menachem Mazuz open an incitement investigation against Zahalka.
