Former Arab Judge Condemns Zoabi's HaTikva Exit

Former Supreme Court judge Abdel al-Rahman Zoabi attacked MK Hanin Zoabi for her premature departure from the Knesset podium as the national anthem began to play. 

"Hanin Zoabi's actions...severely hurt the relations between Arabs and Jews - a powerful tool for the extremists," he said in a radio interview. 

"These plays, shameful in my opinion, have to stop, and we must focus on more important things, for the sake of the two peoples," he added.
