Seif el-Din el-Zoubi[note 1] (1913 – 26 June 1986) was an Israeli-Arab politician.

Biography

El-Zoubi was born in 1913 in Nazareth, where he attended high school. During the British Mandate of Palestine, he was active in the Haganah, and later received the Fighter of the State Decoration. From 1959 to 1974 he was the mayor of Nazareth.

In 1949 he was elected to the Knesset as the leader of the Democratic List of Nazareth. He was re-elected in 1951 on the Democratic List for Israeli Arabs, and 1955, but resigned from the Knesset on 13 February 1956. In 1959 he became mayor of Nazareth, holding the post until 1965, when he returned to the Knesset on the Progress and Development list, which briefly merged into Cooperation and Development before regaining its independence. He was re-elected in 1969 elections, and in 1971 became mayor of Nazareth again, holding the post until 1974. After re-election in 1973, el-Zoubi was appointed Deputy Speaker of the Knesset. In 1974 Progress and Development merged into the Alignment, before leaving it and forming the United Arab List. He was re-elected for a final time on the United Arab List slate in 1977, before resigning his seat on 3 April 1979. He died in 1986.

Haneen Zoabi, the Joint List MK, is a relative.

Controversy

According to Israeli historian Ori Stendel, el-Zoubi had used his ties with the Israeli establishment to compensate for the decline of his political power within the Zubia clan.[1] Historian Hillel Cohen wrote that elZoubi was "upgraded" by Mapai in exchange for relinquishing national demands and legitimizing land confiscations.[2]Yitzhak Laor described his conduct as tantamount to taking political bribery.[3]
