MK Ben-Ari to March in Nazareth

MK Michael Ben-Ari plans to protest in Nazareth Sunday afternoon, despite orders from police to cancel the planned protest. Police pulled a permit that had been given to Ben Ari to carry out the protest against MK Hanin Zoabi, a resident of the town, over her support of the Gaza flotilla and other anti-Israel activities.

Ben-Ari said that he planned to show up for the protest anyway, because as a Knesset member he had the right to protest against anti-Israel extremists like Zoabi, and had Knesset immunity.
