A petition requesting that Israeli-Arab Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi (National Democratic Assembly party) be banned from running in Israel’s January elections has been signed by 15,000 people, Israel Hayom reported.

Israel’s Central Elections Committee had received two requests to ban Zoabi and Ahmed Tibi of Raam-Ta’al party from vying for Knesset seats, according to the newspaper.

The petition to ban Zoabi—launched by Likud MK Danny Danon—was signed by her own cousin, Abu Daoud Zoabi, who said Oct. 25 that Hanin Zoabi “doesn’t represent us and is working from within the Knesset against the State of Israel.”

Abu Daoud noted that Hanin “opposes the state and since she represents the Palestinians in Ramallah, let her live there.” MK Ofir Akunis of Likud said Hanin should be disqualified because her stated goals “support armed struggle by a foreign nation or a terrorist organization against the State of Israel.”

    Where do I sign? How can someone expect to run for office on a treason-based campaign platform? This would be like a cracker in Georgia running for Congress after seeking to secede from the Union…
