MKs Confront Arab Female Knesset Member Zoabi
Member of Knesset Hanen Zoabi (Balad party) was confronted by her colleagues during a speech in the plenum Wednesday, MK Zoabi has been cited by the Knesset for past incidents such as her participation in the flotilla to Gaza.
Minister Limor Livnat, MK Ofir Akunis, MK Carmel Shama Hacohen and MK Zion Pinyan all disrupted her speech. At one point MK Pinyan called out, "Go to Syria's parliament." MK Zoabi is Israel's first female Arab Knesset member and have often publicly spoke against Israeli policy toward Gaza. She was cited earlier this year for pushing a Knesset security guard during a debate.
