VIDEO: Interview with Palestinian MP Haneen Zoab. Middle East Monitor, 2 August 2016
Haneen Zoabi is the first female Arab citizen of Israel who is of Palestinian descent to serve in the Israeli Knesset [parliament]. Serving since 2009, Zoabi represents the National Democratic Assembly party whose aim is to transform Israel into a democracy for all its citizens. The party is now part of the Joint List.
An outspoken opponent of the Israeli occupation, Zoabi courts controversy due to her rejection of Israel as a Jewish state and her strong criticism of its policies.
Zoabi speaks to Middle East Monitor about the struggle of Palestinian citizens of Israel and the expulsion bill recently approved by the Israeli Knesset.
