Michaeli attacks MK Zuabi during Knesset debate

In a Knesset discussion on the conclusions of the Turkel Commission Wednesday, MK Anastasia Michaeli (Israel Beiteinu) spent nearly her entire allotted four minutes attacking MK Haneen Zuabi (Balad).
Michaeli began her attack by saying people like Zuabi are using human rights and democracy to promote terrorism.
The Israeli Beiteinu MK told the nearly empty Knesset chamber that on Tuesday, she had asked Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to open a criminal investigation against Zuabi. Noticing that Zuabi was no longer in the chamber, Michaeli said, "She's too afraid to be here and look me in the eyes."
Continuing to direct her comments at Zuabi, she added, "You are not a freedom fighter, you are a traitor. You shouldn't be sitting in the Knesset, you should be sitting in prison."
