Zehava Galon

This is what happens when a supposed "learned" radical lefty is caught in lack of basic English. She tries to rail against Ben Gvir who spoke out against those Arabs who support terror crimes. But she stumbles in speaking in her English propaganda.

In another ridiculous "charge," she blamed him for the... 1995 Y. Rabin Killing, no less.

Galon is famous for seeking excuses for racist Arab butchers Islamists. The bigot went even so far as misusing the Holocaust in her extreme politics.

That, asides her, her party, embracing Arabs but rejecting Mizrachi - Sfardim.

Dishonest Zehava Galon was also caught saying to a colleague, referring to a journalist: "Watch out. He is dangerus...he will reveal what you 'really' think."



'Zehava Galon tries to attack Ben Gvir in English and gets into trouble with the language.'

Rotter, Oct 18, 2022

During a Zoom call conducted by Galon in English, Galon apparently tried to tell the listeners about Ben Gviir's famous interview on the IDF airwaves in which he talked about his vision for deporting supporters of terrorism and terrorists from the country. Ben Gvir, who was asked by the interviewer how he would deport them, gave as an example the chairman The joint list Ayman Odeh said that indeed, he will deport him "by train, truck, plane. Whatever you want".

But here everything went wrong. When Galon tried to use the names of the means of transportation that Ben Gvir mentioned for deporting terrorists, she did not remember how to pronounce the simple words trains and planes in English, and one of the people present was heard correcting her and helping her complete the sentence. And it doesn't end here. Later, Galon has trouble pronouncing even the phrase "system of government" and even switches to speaking partially in Hebrew.

'The rampant left: the Arab is embraced, the Mizrachi is kicked'

Walla! 08/09/2015.

MK Zahalka attacked the Labor Party in the Knesset yesterday and accused it of racism. This is not surprising to Maayan Poplavsky, after a house circle with leftists, most of whom were Ashkenazim, she realized that even in this so-called pluralistic house the presence of the Mizrahi is still foreign

Maayan Poplavsky

In the last election I was debating who to vote for. The deliberation and the approach to the voter's day brought me to a Meretz Beit circle with the participation of Zehava Galon. ... I would be happy to meet and hear. The home club took place in a socio-economically strong city. The smell of cooking greeted the guests and the kitchen was open and inviting, the house was full of books and pleasant lighting, even two celebrities "decorated" the event with their presence. Beneath it all was an invisible happening, it is doubtful if anyone even noticed it. I looked to the sides, an overwhelming majority of Ashkenazim from the upper-upper class plus. It seems that the pure, educated white Ashkenazim have come together to give advice on how to pass the blocking percentage and get as close as possible to the political mainstream. It was a house circle known in advance, with a very clear political agenda.

I looked around and saw the owner of the house smiling at me in countless pictures in the living room with Arab women at checkpoints in demonstrations. One photo from the Qalandiya checkpoint, the other at the women making peace demonstration. More and more visual representations of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in this Beit Sheva that seems to know no shortage. I felt these pictures were an insult to my intelligence.

I asked myself if the photos don't "dirty" the protected and safe home landscape. The answer is no, for the simple reason - both the view, adversity and occupation are a great view for an Ashkenazi homeowner. I call it "oriental art and a display of hypocrisy". Because apparently there are no pictures of a housewife with Arab women oppressed at the IDF checkpoints in Shikhon D in Be'er Sheva. The housewife from the suburbs is busy with the daily difficulty of surviving, living a life that is not out of financial humiliation. How photogenic it is to hang pictures from the checkpoints and return to the spacious and pleasant house in a Tel Aviv suburb with Fully equipped and remote control.

Here, too, the remote control conflict. But even with a remote control it is possible, it turns out, to cut a not bad social coupon.

When questions started from the audience towards Galon, which was short on time (election time, after all, it should be enough) the Ashkenazim raised their hands and struggled loudly. The few Mizrahim who were present at the event did not find a single moment to enter the discussion as an active participant but only by listening. And I asked myself why. Do they know that even in this so-called pluralistic home, their presence is still foreign, involuntarily different? I got a feeling that if I had run the situation forward
(For a branching that may not exist in reality) There is a great chance that if the Mizrachi would have raised his hand and spoken a little differently with a certain diction or a light accent, he would probably have passed through the crowd murmuring: "Okay, let's move on, we already talked about it."

And in the same situation - if there was an Arab present who would have asked the same question - the Arab would have been hugged. How ironic: the Arab is hugged, the Mizrachi is kicked out.

And this is actually the capsule of the conflict. On that day I understood the traces of the systematic disregard that Knesset member Zahalka spoke about yesterday from the Knesset podium towards Knesset member Stav Shapir. The conquered ignorance (conquered by words or gestures) is the "top of the Kremlin" that each of us has in our soul. This is a description by David Grossman in one of his books.


'Following the attack, Margalit asked on Twitter: "3 of the wounded are our policemen, and our Zehava'le Galon'le thinks that their hand was light on the trigger?" '

Reut Hadar, INN, 19.10.15.

A virtual confrontation began last night (Sunday) after the attack in Be'er Sheva, between the chairman of the Meretz KHK party Zehava Galon, the "Israel Hayom" commentator and the veteran media personality Dan Margalit.

Minutes after the murderous attack at the central station in Be'er Sheva, Margalit tweeted on his Twitter account, "Three of the wounded are our officers. Well, our Zehava'le Galon'le thinks that their hand is light on the trigger? Maybe you will come to the hospital to explain this to the wounded on behalf of her Meretz?".

Galon reacted harshly and wrote on her Facebook page, "Dan Margalit, you piece of filth...

'Galon lies and incites against the settlers'

On her Twitter account, Chairperson Meretz claimed that "the settlers are committing pogr... against left-wing activists, Palestinians and IDF soldiers".

Hezki Baruch, INN, 28.04.17.

Many surfers attacked Galon on Twitter, and responded to her, among other things: "When Arabs are included it's not okay, but settlers? They are all shit. Pogroms? It's a shame that a woman who heads a party in Israel doesn't know the history of her people."

Another surfer wrote to Chairman Meretz, "Let's leave the word pogrom for things a little more difficult, with all the outrage over the behavior of the settlers."

'Done Remaining Silent': Samaria Council Slaps Left-Wing Politician Zahava Galon with Libel Suit.'

Aryeh Savir, JP, Jul 14, 2020.

— The Samaria Regional Council has filed a libel lawsuit against left-wing political figure Zehava Galon after she said on social media that the Council's actions were "giving legitimacy to terrorism."

In April 2019, a terrorist attacked Yehoshua Sherman and his 14-year-old daughter on their way to their home to Elon Moreh, in Samaria. Sherman neutralized the terrorist with the help of Yosef Ben-Gossi, another resident who was driving behind him.

The B'Tselem organization tried to discredit Sherman and published a supposed investigation in which it claimed that the terrorist was shot after lying on the ground. However, authorities announced that the two had acted as expected of them and in self-defense.
Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan supported the two and gave them a civil certificate.

"This is our answer to the hypocritical B'Tselem organization that is trying to tarnish a father who protected his daughter from murder," Dagan stated at the time.
Galon, who was also one of the founders of B'Tselem and a former chairman of the extreme left-wing Meretz party, told her 100,000 followers on Twitter that the award was "giving legitimacy to terrorism."

Dagan demanded that she apologize.
The Samaria Council's stance on the terror attack was backed by Deputy State Attorney Nurit Littman, who rejected B'Tselem's investigation and reprimanded the organization and Galon.

"It would have been better for B'Tselem's investigators to exercise caution before stating that 'settlers executed [the terrorist] and the army whitewashed their actions.' It would have been better to wait for the results of the investigation before reaching the said conclusion. Moreover, B'Tselem did not pass on to the police any evidence that could support the allegation," she wrote.
Galon refused to apologize, and in response, the Samaria Regional Council filed a lawsuit against her for defamation and libel in the amount of NIS 150,000.

"This method, in which elected officials have a light hand on the keyboard and they mistakenly think that the heroic residents in Judea and Samaria will be a punching bag, will be discontinued," Dagan declared. "Anyone who dares to continue to discredit the residents in Judea and Samaria will pay not only a public but also a personal fee for this. We are done remaining silent."

"Even though Galon knew that her words were deliberate defamation of the victim which were meant to harm the settlement enterprise, she did not back down from her words, did not apologize to the father who protected his daughter and hinted that he was a terrorist," he added.
