The wife of Israel’s Prime Minister gave a lesson on how to prepare Moroccan-style vegetarian meatballs.
Rabat – Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, gave her fans and supporters a lesson in Moroccan cooking while praising the use of medicinal cannabis.
In the nine-minute video, posted on Facebook by a fan page under the name “We love Mrs. Sara Netanyahu,” the Prime Minister’s wife prepares Moroccan-style vegetarian meatballs alongside Tal Gilboa, a vegan animal rights activist, and the official advisor for animal affairs.
Gilboa asked Netanyahu what she thinks of cannabis. “Cannabis is a very important thing for sick people, for those who suffer,” Netanyahu replies.
“There really are people who need cannabis… and medical cannabis is a blessing, and I only hope that as many people as possible can access it,” she added.
Netanyahu’s comments come in the wake of new laws being put in place last July by the Israeli Ministry of Health, facilitating access to cannabis medical purposes in Israel.
Sara Netanyahu’s son, Yair, recently caused a stir among Moroccans in May after he called on Arabs and Muslims to “free occupied Arab Islamic lands” beginning with Ceuta and Melilla.
He posted the statement to his 28,600 Twitter followers, saying “Dear all Arabs and Muslims, Want to free occupied Arab Islamic lands? Here’s a good start!” Attached was a map of the Spanish enclaves in Morocco.
The tweet received 1,200 replies, the overwhelming majority disagreeing with the 27-year-old’s statement.
