Uproar in Knesset as MKs Call Feiglin ‘Fascist’ and Threaten to “Choke” Him


moshe-feiglinRecriminations abound in the Knesset Monday, as MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) removed MK Mohammed Barakeh (Hadash) from the stand after Barakeh threatened to “choke” him.

MK Jamal Zahalka (Balad) then joined in on the unrest, being forcibly removed by security from the platform after he called Feiglin a “fascist.”

Both moves sparked loud cries of protest from the Opposition and general confusion in the plenary.

“If you think I’m going to capitulate to that kind of verbal violence, you’re wrong,” Feiglin responded on the podium.

Minister Yuval Steinitz (Likud) said that “such statements [calling Feiglin] a ‘fascist, neo-Nazi or a traitor’ – these expressions cannot wait [to be judged upon in] the Ethics Committee.”

“Expressions of this kind are destroying the ability to talk to each other,” Steinitz continued, “and I’m surprised at those who sit here, ready to give a hand to these expressions.” Read more at Arutz Sheva.

  1. Watched the video. The Knesset is really a worthless joke. How can they ever get anything done with everyone shouting and walking around? They don’t show respect to one another. And these are the “elected” officials who are supposed to defend their people?

  2. Everyone should be promoting the ‘Jewish nation’ bill

    Presumably ,every single commentor of all stripes proclaim they are pro a jewish state,

    ipso there should a steamroll of comments in support of this historic bill.

  3. i am surpised that these butchers are aloud to be a part of the political process altogether.they are animals the sons of animals
