MK Michaeli censured for 'physically disturbing' Zoabi

MK Anastasia Michaeli (Israel Beiteinu) was reprimanded by the Knesset Ethics Committee on Tuesday for "attempting to physically disturb" MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) in a special Knesset meeting following last year's Gaza flotilla incident.
Zoabi also complained to the committee about nine other MKs for comments made during the same discussion.Zoabi told the Ethics Committee that, as she spoke during the Knesset "The Gaza Flotilla and Israel's response" discussion two days after the boarding of the Mavi Marmara, Michaeli "wildly approached the stand and raised her hand towards me in a threatening gesture, trying to prevent me from speaking. If a Knesset usher hadn't intervened, I would have been physically harmed."
