Outrage as Zoabi Slanders IDF Mavi Marmara 'Murderers'

A heated confrontation erupted between ninth-grade students from the Rogozin High School in Kiryat Ata near Haifa, and Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) during a class visit to the Knesset on Thursday. The students reported that during a lecture, the MK called the Israel Defense Forces soldiers who stopped the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla "murderers."

The students walked out of the lecture and sent letters of complaint to several government ministers over the issue.
