MK Haneen Zoabi joined the infamous Gaza flotilla.
Dear MK Haneen Zoabi,
The Israeli Parliament revoked some of your political privileges, sighting your consistent support of Israel's worst enemies.
You claim you are a "Palestinian" - you are not. You are an Israeli Arab living in the geographical area known as Palestine, a territory assigned in 1922 by the League of Nations as the Jewish National Home.
Furthermore; Political rights in Palestine were granted to Jews only according to the "Mandate for Palestine," an historical League of Nations document. All other inhabitants of the Land of Israel including you are to enjoy Religious and Civil Rights only.
The "Mandate for Palestine" clearly differentiates between political rights - referring to Jewish self-determination as an emerging polity - and civil and religious rights, referring to guarantees of equal personal freedoms to non-Jewish residents as individuals and within select communities. Not once are Arabs as a people mentioned in the "Mandate for Palestine." At no point in the entire document is there any granting of political rights to non-Jewish entities (i.e., Arabs). Article 2 of the "Mandate for Palestine" explicitly states that the Mandatory should:
"Be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish National Home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions, and also for safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine, irrespective of race and religion."
Political rights to self-determination as a polity for Arabs were guaranteed by the League of Nations in four other mandates - in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and later Trans-Jordan [today Jordan].

She's among at least 10% of the Knesset who are enemy sympathizers. It comes with Democracy and the right of all citizens to vote.
Democracy: 51% takes everything away from 49%. The Founding Fathers hated democracy for that reason. Israel needs to learn what we already know.
