Did Arab lawmaker Zoabi make an obscene gesture during a Knesset debate?

Did Joint List MK Haneen Zoabi flip the bird at a Likud lawmaker during a stormy Knesset session?

During a discussion on Monday in the Knesset plenum on proposed legislation that would stiffen penalties against those guilty of security-related crimes, Zoabi heckled Likud MK Yoav Kisch in reaction to his accusation that Arab lawmakers in the parliament were representatives of the Palestinians instead of Israel’s Arab citizens.

“There are two competing trends among the Arabs of Israel,” Kisch said. “While Arabs see themselves as citizens of this country who want equal rights and who see themselves as equal to Jewish citizens, [the Arab lawmakers] unfortunately sing a different tune.”
