MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) said Wednesday that Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein's decision to close the criminal case against her and other Israeli citizens who participated in the  May 2010 Gaza flotilla was "expected" and MKs who incited against her owe her an apology.

"I am not at all surprised the case against the flotilla participants was closed, including the case against me," Zoabi stated.

Zoabi said that the decision "proves what I have been saying all along - my participation in the flotilla was a political, completely legal act."

The Balad MK attacked Knesset members who "incited" against her for her participation in the flotilla, saying they owed her an apology. "I don't expect an apology, but at least they should do some soul searching on the issue."
