The Knesset revoked privileges from MK Hanin Zoabi Tuesday, due to her participation in the Gaza aid flotilla in May.She better be. This must serve as an example to any politician who abuses their standings in parliament and office, and works to undermine the security of the country they're "serving" that they are not above the law.
A majority of 34 MKs voted in favor of invalidating her diplomatic passport and revoking her right to receive funding for legal expenses.
A violent brawl was nearly started between Arab and Jewish MKs after the hearing. Zoabi clapped when the Knesset's decision was announced, and MK Yoel Hasson drew close to her and said, "You will soon be a former MK."
And do I notice correctly, that some Arab MKs almost broke out in fighting? Sigh.
