MK Hoffman: Zoabi Undeserving of MK Position


 

MK Ronen Hoffman related to MK Hanin Zoabi’s statement uttered on Tuesday, claiming that the “Abductors are not terrorists,” saying that “Hanin Zoabi does not deserve to serve as a member of Israel’s Knesset.”

“Zoabi is a living example of the fact that democracy does not always know how to protect itself. The essence of democracy is openness and freedom of expression, by boundaries must also be maintained. When a member of the Knesset voluntarily serves as a spokesperson for terrorist organizations, she has crossed the line of legitimacy,” he added.
