As the Knesset prepares to vote on whether or not to uphold MK Haneen Zoabi’s 6-month suspension from the Knesset, she submitted an appeal on Wednesday.

"There was not and will not be someone who will turn me or my nation into guests or strangers in this land," she said. 

The Knesset Ethics Committee banned Zoabi from all Knesset activities except voting in July for incitement. The panel received many complaints about Zoabi regarding her statement that the June kidnapping of three Israeli teens was not terrorism and her support for Hamas rocket attacks on Israel during Operation Protective Edge.

She said anyone who supports the decision to suspend her "is against justice, equality, freedom of speech" and in favor of political persecution.
