The Knesset will not vote Wednesday on the controversial Haneen Zoabi bill, which if passed would enable the legislature to remove the Balad MK from the Knesset immediately and permanently.

The bill, proposed by MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beytenu), would permit the Knesset to ban an MK who encourages terrorism and acts against the state even if he or she has not been convicted of a crime. Netanyahu told the Likud faction Monday that he intended to support it as long as technical changes were made, such as requiring a special majority.
