Arab MK to Face Ethics Charges over 'Racism' Testimony
MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) filed a complaint to the Ethics Committee after he found that Zoabi did not request its permission for participating in the anti-Israel tribunal.
"In a check I conducted, I discovered that MK Zoabi did not request the Ethics Committee's approval before flying abroad, as is mandated by the Knesset Rules of Procedure," wrote Schneller. "I would be thankful if the Committee looks into MK Zoabi's behavior regarding the trip's purpose, the financing elements and the protection that the law gives her as she carries out subversion against the State of Israel..."
Openly making a laughing stock of Israel raises Arab MKs' "street cred" among their voters, and the MKs vie with each other over who will take more radically subversive steps against the State.
