The Knesset Ethics Committee decided on Wednesday to temporarily suspend MK Ofer Cassif (Hadash-Ta’al) from the plenary following a verbal confrontation in which he called MK Almog Cohen (Otzma Yehudit), among other things, a “stinking Nazi,” “zero,” “stupid” and “bloodthirsty,” Arutz Sheva reports.

Cassif will be suspended from the plenary for three sessions and will not be able to use the parliamentary tools until the end of the winter session.

Cassif, the sole Jewish representative in Hadash-Ta’al, has repeatedly drawn criticism for his anti-Israel statements, including comparisons of Israeli leaders and even the State of Israel to the Nazi party and Nazi-era Germany. In another incident, Cassif said that Israel should not be compared to an apartheid state because, he claimed, it is “worse than apartheid”.
