Rightist activists, Zoabi supporters brawl at court

A disruption at a Supreme Court hearing on Knesset Member Hanin Zoabi's disqualification from politics has escalated into a brawl.

 

During the hearing rightist activists led by MK Michael Ben-Ari yelled that Zoabi and her fellow Arab parliamentarians should "go to Syria." Zoabi's supporters, in turn, called the activists "racists" before the two groups got into a shoving match. Zoabi and MK Jamal Zahalka were led out of court during the incident. (Aviel Magnezi)
