Arab MK Zoabi gets Violent in Israel's democratic legislature - "You're abusing the democracy"

MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) flew into an uncontrollable rage Wednesday during a Knesset speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Netanyahu noted that he expected Opposition parties to protest regarding other issues – such as the participation by MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) in the violent Gaza flotilla in 2010...and addressed MK Hanin Zoabi. "We have here an MK who participated in a provocative flotilla meant to break the state's naval blockade. You are lucky you are a member of the Israeli parliament and not the Syrian parliament for example."

The remark threw Zoabi into a rage...she was visibly distraught and pushed a Knesset guard who was escorting her out (2:27 on video).

She approached a microphone and said to the Prime Minister: “Stand me against a wall and have the soldiers from the flotilla shoot me!”
