Dr Jamal Zahalka ( _ar. جمال زحالقة, _he. ג'מאל זחאלקה, born 11 January 1955) is an Israeli Arab politician and member of the Knesset on behalf of Balad.


Zahalkha studied pharmacy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, gaining a BA, MA and PhD, before working as a pharmacist.

He was first elected to the Knesset in 2003 on Balad's list, and was re-elected in 2006.

Zahalka describes Israel's political discourse about the Palestinians as revolving around the ideas of separation, apartheid, and transfer. He argues that an apartheid system is already in place, with the West Bank and Gaza Strip separated into "cantons," and Palestinians required to carry permits to travel between them.
