MK on Turkish flotilla loses parliamentary privileges

Balad MK Hanan Zouabi, who was a passenger on the Turkish flotilla of fools in May, had her parliamentary immunity lifted by the Knesset on Tuesday night.
After a stormy three hour debate, the Knesset voted 34 - 16 to revoke MK Haneen Zoabi's parliamentary immunity and other privileges. There were no abstentions. Two Knesset Members attended the session but chose not to vote. Zoabi was on board the Turkish flotilla that attempted to dock in Gaza. The incident ended in violence. Zoabi is Israel's first female Arab Knesset Member. She was elected as part of the Balad party in 2008.
Israel Radio reported on Wednesday morning that the two Knesset members who were present but did not vote were Knesset Speaker Ruby Rivlin and Benny Begin, both of the Likud.

She should be charged with sedition and have her citizenship revoked.

She should serve time in prison.

That will then make her qualified to become a leading candidate for the PA

Only Stupid Jews entertain traitors and subversives in their own elected Parliament.

Its high time a bright line was drawn between responsible dissent and open treason. Hanan Zouabi crossed that line and openly identified with the enemies of Israel. Revoking her Knesset immunity is not sanction enough for what she did to the country.
