This is a member of the Knesset expressing her Islamic Jew-hatred. The fact that she is a member of the Knesset gives the lie to the entire “Palestinian” victimhood narrative. How many Jews are members of Parliament in Muslim states? But her vicious opposition to the state she represents ought to disqualify her from any representative role.
“Arab MK Zoabi: Jews not entitled to self-determination,” by Lahav Harkov, Jerusalem Post, October 13, 2017 (thanks to Mark):

On Saturday, Zoabi was the keynote speaker at a gala in Dallas for the Jerusalem Fund for Education and Community Development, an American pro-Palestinian organization.
Zoabi called for Palestinians to “define the matter of self-determination – not for the Jews, for the Israelis.”

Both Zoabi and the Balad party, of which she is a member and which is currently part of the Joint List, have been blocked by the Central Elections Committee on those grounds, however, the Supreme Court overturned the ban….
