Haneen Zoabi hates Israel. She encourages its enemies. She spews anti-Israel propaganda with reckless abandon. The kidnappers and murderers of three Israeli teens last spring were not terrorists, according to her.
Haneen Zoabi also is a member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, as part of Arab nationalist party Balad.
There have been moves to ban Zoabi from the Knesset, and her disruptive behavior within the Knesset has resulted in a temporary ban.
But she’s still there, and running again in the upcoming March 2015 elections.
There is no such thing as a Haneen Zoabi in reverse in most countries, and certainly in Arab countries, where Zoabi would be in jail or worse.
In the U.S., a Zoabi-equivalent probably wouldn’t make it into Congress because of our dual-party system.
No, in the U.S. a Zoabi would have to settle for an endowed professorship at Columbia, or presidency of the American Studies Association.
Danny Danon, a popular “right wing” Israeli politician, knows the public doesn’t like Zoabi, and is running an animated campaign ad mocking her for supporting Israeli’s enemies in order to boost his own election prospects.
Sorry, don’t have version with English subtitles, but you probably can figure it out:
Now Zoabi is suing. Seriously.

Arab Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi –- the one who sailed with IHH terrorists, said that the kidnap-murderers of three yeshiva boys last June were not terrorists, defends terrorists and calls soldiers ‘Nazis” – is suing Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon for a video showing her in jail with terrorists…
Lyrics to the clip are sung to the tune of “Oh Susanna” as the action shows “Sheriff” Danon locking up Zoabi in jail along with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and Azmi Bishara, a former Knesset Member in Zoabi’s Balad party who fled the country after being indicted for aiding Hezbollah in the Second Lebanon War.
Danon posted the video as part of his campaign against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the elections next week for chairman of the Likud party.
After hearing of Zoabi’s lawsuit, Danon said she deserves to be in jail. The public may be behind him, judging by a recent poll showing that 90 percent of the respondents support revoking her citizenship.
The lyrics of the video panning Zoabi include, “There is a limit to every traitor.”
