Taking the high road? MKs to ignore Zoabi after kerfuffle

On the playground, children are often advised to ignore bullies, because if they’re not getting a rise out of anyone, they’re likely to stop. On Tuesday, an initiative to bring that playground logic to the Knesset in dealing with MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) spread among MKs, less than a week after she sparked a melee in the plenum.

MK Eitan Cabel (Zionist Union) sent a letter to all MKs asking them to walk out of the plenum whenever Zoabi speaks, the day after Yesh Atid voted in its faction meeting to do so. Likud MK Yoav Kisch has been working on convincing coalition lawmakers to do the same.
