Hamas: Zoabi is Suing Danon


Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi filed a suit against Knesset member Danny Danon, this week, claiming incitement against her, according to the Hamas Website. The suit was in response to Danon's demand that Zoabi be disqualified from running in the next Knesset election because of her participation in a 2010 flotilla that was intended to break Israel's naval blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Zoabi claimed that Danon's charges are part of a racist political system in Israel, adding that they constitute what the report called "a threat to her personal safety and life."
