Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and head of Yisrael Beytenu praised the Central Election Committee on Thursday for voting to disqualify Balad MK Haneen Zoabi from running in the March 17 election.
Following the decision, Liberman, whose party initiated the petition, said Zoabi's place was clearly not in the Knesset but rather with the "Hamas terrorists in Gaza."
Liberman said he hoped the High Court would not allow a "supporter of terrorists including those on the Mavi Marmara to run in Knesset elections in the Jewish state."
