Persecuting Hanin Zoabi

Israel spurns Palestinian rights.

Israel's Supreme Court ruled twice on her. Most recently it did so in mid-February. It went both ways. More on that below.

In July 2010, Knesset members stripped her of key parliamentary rights and privileges. They did so lawlessly and maliciously. They targeted her for doing the right thing.

She participated in the May 2010 Freedom Flotilla. She was aboard the Mavi Marmara. It was bringing vital aid to Gaza. Israeli commandos attacked it. They murdered nine activists on board in cold blood. 

Zoabi was lucky. She escape unharmed. She called Israel's attack a "pirate military operation." She did so in Israel's Knesset.

"It was clear from the size of the force that boarded the ship that the purpose was not only to stop this sail(ing), but to cause the largest possible number of fatalities in order to stop such initiatives in the future."

Other members repeatedly interrupted her. Some shouted "Go to Gaza, traitor!" She received death threats. Two security guards were assigned to protect her.
