Is Israel's First Female Arab MK a Terror Supporter?


Deputy Knesset Speaker and Member of Knesset Danny Danon (Likud Party) is working to disqualify member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi (Balad party), Israel's first female Arab MK.

"Zoabi uses her diplomatic immunity to support terrorists trying to kill soldiers. No MK like this has a place in the Israeli Knesset," said Danon. He said Zoabi is a successor of MK Azmi Bishara, whom, after countless anti-Israel rhetoric, was accused of aiding Hizbullah in the Second Lebanon War and fled the country.
 
Danon's initiative states that Azmi Bishara, only spoke out against Israel prior to the charges of assistance to Hezbollah. Zoabi, on the other hand, Danon stated, has participated in the Mavi Marmara flotilla incident and met with Hamas leaders, among other things.
