Danon: Bar Zoabi from running for next Knesset

MK Danny Danon (Likud) asked the Central Elections Committee to bar MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) from running for the next Knesset, as sources close to the Prime Minister's Office continued to say an election may be near.

In a letter sent to the Central Elections Committee on Wednesday, Danon emphasized Zoabi's participation in the 2010 Gaza flotilla, which led to her losing some of her privileges as an MK.



"This is a terrorist disguised as a MK. In June 2010, she participated in the terrorist Marmara flotilla, in April 2011, she called for a violent battle like the Intifada and in February 2012, she called for terror against Jewish Israeli citizens," Danon wrote, adding that she also celebrated with terrorists released in the Schalit deal.

"Zoabi used her immunity to support terrorists that tried to kill IDF soldiers," he stated. "An MK like that does not have a place in the Knesset,  and belongs in prison."
