Ignoring the Knesset ban of political officials traveling to enemy states, Balad MKs Jamal Zahalka and Wasal Taha left for Damascus Thursday to meet with Syrian leadership there. The Knesset passed the law in 2001, when another Balad MK, Azmi Bishara, travelled to Syria. Zahalka and Taha said their visit was to show solidarity with the Lebanese people. Knesset officials have yet to announce if the two will be penalized for their visit.
