A-G likely to indict Zoabi for saying Israeli-Arab guard 'should be scared of us'

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Tuesday informed MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) that he will likely indict her for telling a crowd of protesters that Israeli-Arabs who work for government security forces, such as a court guard, "should be scared of us."
Weinstein invited Zoabi to a pre-indictment hearing to try to dispute the charges and convince him to change his mind, but it is rare that the state backs off of an indictment once a public announcement is made.
The proposed charges for alleged incitement and disgracing a public servant relate to a hearing at a Nazareth court. A statement said Zoabi had called Israeli-Arab police officers “traitors,” implied threats against them and told a protesting crowd to spit in their faces.
