Enraged Zoabi Removed from Knesset


MK Hanin Zoabi was removed from Knesset on Wednesday after flying into a rage while debating Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and refusing to come to order despite three warnings. At one point Zoabi yelled at Speaker Reuven Rivlin, “Put me on trial. It was a crime.”

She then shoved a Knesset guard before being removed from the hall.

Netanyahu had criticized Zoabi over her participation in a 2010 flotilla aimed at breaking Israel's naval blockade of Hamas by force.
