Michaeli Throws Water at Fellow MK in the Knesset


knessetIsraeli politicians often pour cold water on each other’s ideas, but rarely on each other.

Anastassia Michaeli, a hawkish Israeli lawmaker, got so angry during a routine parliamentary debate today that she took a glass of water, tossed it at Labor Party backbencher Raleb Majadele and said “shame on you” before storming out.

It’s unclear exactly what provoked the outburst. Michaeli says Majadele insulted her and that she expects “a man to be respectful toward a woman.” She was unrepentant afterward, saying she hoped Majadele would “cool off” from the water.

Majadele was left with drops of water all over his shirt and jacket. He called Michaeli “crazy” as she left.

Parliament Speaker Reuven Rivlin says he will file a complaint against Michaeli in house ethics committee.

  1. We must be grateful that it was just water – it could have been petrol, followed by an ignited match. These characters know no limits

  2. You can be this great guy that everyone knows about but have no middos and no control over anger. id rather be me (not famous) and have control over my temper.
