Atty General to Oppose Disqualifying Zoabi

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein will submit his opinion to the Supreme Court on Thursday in a hearing over the Elections Committee's decision to bar Zoabi from running for a second term in Knesset. Weinstein plans to oppose the disqualification.
During her term in Knesset, Zoabi took part in an attempt to forcibly break the IDF's naval blockade of Hamas, met with Hamas terrorists, and blamed Israeli policy for worldwide terrorism targeting Israelis and Jews.
