Itamar Ben Gvir: The Zoabi 'Investigation' is a Sham


Attorney Itamar Ben Gvir, who was among those protesting against MK Hanin Zoabi as she arrived for questioning in Lod by the Lahav 433 Unit (Israel's FBI). Ben Gvir told Arutz Sheva that, "This investigation is simply a joke, a sham being put before the Israeli public," he said.

"About what are they investigating her right now...disturbing the peace? Disorderly conduct? These are trivial issues," Ben Gvir asserted. "We are talking about a member of the Israeli Knesset who is an enemy of the State; a spy who has easy access to the means to betray us," he continued. 

"Instead of putting her on trial for incitement to violence and terror, the Attorney-General is questioning her about allegedly insulting an Israeli public official. And this effort only put out in order to silence the public. It is shameful," he said.
