You be the judge (and jury)

I'd like to suggest that the following two definitions, one directly taken from the US Constitution, the other a more general definition are fairly clear and unambiguous:
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court."

US Constitution, Article III

"Treason: Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies."

Wikipedia

Just so that it's 100% clear, I'll tell you that my understanding is that a person who acts to aid a country's enemies has committed the act of treason; a crime which was (theoretically) punishable by death in the UK until 1998; by contrast, murder ceased to be punishable by death in 1969. This, I am sure you will agree, makes it a fairly serious crime.

It is within this context that I'd like to draw your attention to the following:

Arab MK joins Hamas defense team: MK Talab El-Sana, head of the United Arab List - Ta'al party, has joined the legal team defending members of Hamas arrested by Israel because they are currently part of a Government which is actively bombing Israel.

2 Arab MKs visit Damascus: MKs Jamal Zahalka and Wasil Taha, together with two other former MKS visited the Syrian capital. The visit had been planned for 2 months previously but had been postponed due to the war in Lebanon, being fought by Syria / Iran's proxy; Hezbollah.

Now surely I can't be the only one out there who sees a close resemblance between the acts of these scum who sit in our Knesset and the definition of treason. Purely and simply, this is abuse of the state, a clear act of treason and they should be put on trial, jailed and the key thrown away - and they should thank their lucky stars that Israel doesn't use the death penalty.

Yup.

I've been saying this for years and called a right-wing fanatic for it. Unfortunately a lot of the far-left things and the words of the representatives of the Arab parties are treasonous.

unfortunately, it is a serious problem when your government members openly support groups that are trying to annihilate you. Sad that this can stand -
