MK Akunis: "MK Zoabi Has No Place in Knesset"


Member of Knesset Ofir Akunis (Likud) reacted to the banning of MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) from running in the upcoming Knesset elections. He stated, "MK Zoabi participatedv in the Mavi Marmara flotilla attack... she has no place in the Knesset. Israeli democracy should be able to defend itself against those who seek to destroy it from within. I believe that her disqualification should be ratified by the Supreme Court."
