Attorney General Yehudah Weinstein told Minister of Interior Eli Yishai (Shas) that his request to take away MK Hanin Zouabi's citizenship would be discussed after the finalization of the investigation into her participation in the Gaza flotilla.

According to IDF Radio, Weinstein wrote Yishai and told him that MK Zouabi (Balad) is suspected of a series of illegal actions against IDF soldiers during her participation in the flotilla. He told Yishai that he would not be discussing his request to strip Zouabi of her citizenship until after the investigation into these suspicions.

MK Zouabi was livid, and said that he should have made clear to Yishai that taking away her citizenship would not be discussed, now or later. She claimed that the Attorney General is supposed to restrain “dangerous political and public trends that undermine the foundations of democracy.”

A video recently made public shows Zouabi prowling the deck of the Mavi Marmara as activists made preparations for a violent encounter with the IDF.
