An Arab MK who's part of the Labor party has shown some common sense
Zionist Union MK Zoher Behalul leveled harsh criticism at fellow Israeli Arab MKs Hanin Zoabi, Basel Ghattas and Jamal Zahalka over their meeting two weeks ago with the families of Palestinian terrorists, calling their actions an "unnecessary provocation."
The three, members of the Balad faction (one of three factions making up the Joint Arab List), were suspended from the Knesset for meeting with the families and observing a moment of silence in honor of the terrorists during that meeting after 450 public complaints and dozens of grievances were filed by MKs from across the political spectrum.
And they fully deserve the suspension they got. They should be disqualified altogether for what they did, and the time has come that this be ensured. Terrorist sympathizers are not people we need in the Knesset.
