MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad)
In the "Jews Only State," democratically elected politicians are suspended from the Parliament for basically being Palestinians and representing Palestinian interests. I can only guess that this is what the Israelis mean when they insist upon being called the "Only Democracy in the Middle East."
The Knesset's Ethics Committee decided today to suspend MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) from all Knesset activities until the end of the current session, which ends in two weeks, following her participation in last year's Gaza flotilla. According to the Ethics Committee, "participation in flotilla does not fall within an MK's legitimate freedom of action."
I guess that Israel doesn't really need enemies, it brings itself down pretty effectively.
