Haneen Zoabi is a Palestinian lawmaker and Member of the Israeli Knesset. She has faced humiliating treatment by Israeli lawmakers, who regularly attack her personally and politically. The Israeli right has targeted MK Zoabi for many years, trying to revoke her citizenship and to disqualify her from reelection. The Knesset Ethics Committee suspended her for six months based on her political views and the Israeli High Court affirmed the suspension. Shortly thereafter, the Israeli Election Committee refused to qualify her as a candidate but upon review by an Israeli court, MK Zoabi was permitted to run for reelection. The Israeli Election Committee attempted to prevent MK Zoabi from running in the 2013 election as well. Despite this massive campaign to silence MK Zoabi, she easily won re-election in March 2015. Her Balad party is now part of the Joint List, a coalition of four Arab parties that garnered thirteen Knesset seats in the March 2015 election.
