MK Ronit Tirosh (Kadima) called to ban the United Arab List from the Knesset on Thursday, after a State Comptroller report revealed that the party used NIS 5,000 in government funds to give plaques to six Gaza flotilla activists.

"The Knesset House Committee should disqualify the United Arab List from the Knesset immediately, in order to prevent them from causing further harm in the future," Tirosh said.

UAL is one of the parties that make up the UAL-Ta'al faction in the Knesset.

 "UAL's behavior shows how they cynically, provocatively and intentionally take advantage of Israeli democracy," she added. "They want to humiliate the State of Israel and make it a laughingstock to the world."
