Basel Ghattas (l), Haneen Zoabi and Jamal Zahalka

After discussing the numerous complaints filed against Joint Arab List MKs Hanin Zoabi, Basel Ghattas and Jamal Zahalka over their meeting last week with the families of Palestinian terrorists, the Ethics Committee reached a majority decision Monday night to suspend Zoabi and Ghattas from plenary sessions and committee hearings for a period of four months, while Zahalka was suspended for two months.

The suspended lawmakers will be able to take part in votes in the plenum and the committees.



  1. Another complete farce. The vote and get paid. Nothing changed. I think this is a form of abuse that Israelis go through and accept. The question is how many more murders of their children is Israel willing to accept. The government absolutely refuses to protect them from this incitement. This entire scheme was a sham. But a valcano is brewing. When will it erupt?

  2. Well, I guess it gets the Knesset 2-4 months of not having to listen to their grandstanding and nonsense but yes, otherwise it tells them there isn’t much of a downside to continuing the Balad tradition of treason and sedition while collecting their fat salaries and perks.

  3. Treason is reported by allowing them to work in enacting laws in Israel?

    It is embarrisiing to have enemies in the Knesset as it is tantamount to having nazi's in the Knesset? What is the difference?
    The world laughs at Israel about this!
