Corrie Lawyer: "Nazi Germany's founding was legal but Israel's founding was theft"

Lawyer for Corrie family on PA TV in July:
"Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law
for a short while... the State of Israel was founded
from the start on robbery and theft"
Israel is a "giant monster... we all want to step on its head,
but talking is not enough" 
 Yesterday, an Israeli court ruled that Rachel Corrie's death was a "regrettable accident," but that Rachel Corrie "chose to put herself in danger." Rachel Corrie was killed when she was run over by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza, at a time when Israel was working to curb terrorist activity in the area. Corrie's family sued Israel for "wrongful death." The family's Israeli Arab lawyer, Hussein Abu Hussein, said in a statement to the press:  
"It's a black day for activists of human rights and people who believe in values of dignity. We believe this decision is a bad decision for all of us - civilians first of all, and peace activists."  [NY Times, August 28, 2012]
 
 

...The following is the transcript of Abu Hussein's interview with Israeli Arab actor, Mohammad Bakri, who hosts the weekly PA TV show:
Hussein Abu Hussein, Israeli Arab lawyer:
"Nazi Germany was a state based on the rule of law for a short while and it found refuge in the law. [However,] the State of Israel was founded from the start on robbery and theft of a nation's homeland. Actually, the correct and true legal definition of what happened to the Palestinians is homeland theft...  We suffer from a great injustice from the giant monster. This monster attacks us daily and bites into our flesh in the Negev, the Galilee, the Triangle [region in Israel], Jerusalem, and the occupied territories, the West Bank and Gaza. Every day it bites into our body."
 
Mohammad Bakri, Israeli Arab actor:    
"I want to step on the head of this monster."

Hussein Abu Hussein, Israeli Arab lawyer:
"We all want to step on its head, but talking is not enough. Everyone has their role."
