MK Hasson to Arab MKs: You're the devil

The Knesset plenum convened Wednesday for a special session titled "the political, economical and social failures of Netanyahu's government." The session was called after 40 Knesset members signed a bill mandating the prime minister to face the House.

 

MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) took the podium as the session began, and was met with heated calls from her colleagues. Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat shouted at her "You shouldn't even be here!" and MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) added, "You have some nerve." MK Zion Fanian (Likud) urges Zoabi to "go and join the Syrian parliament."

MK Yoel Hasson's (Kadima) speech went a step further: Addressing all Arab MKs, he said, "You are the ones impeding coexistence. You're the devil. You're the hurdle. Just wait and see – you will lose."

 

He then turned his attention to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and urges him to end Hamas' rule of Gaza Strip and strike peace with the Palestinians.

 

MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) took the podium next, defended the Coalition and blasted the Opposition – especially the "self-hating Kadima Party." MK Afu Aghbaria (Hadash) interrupted him and was answered with "You hate Israel – go to Gaza."

 

MK Alex Miller (Yisrael Beiteinu) also defended the Coalition, saying that the crisis in Syria, the Iranian threat and the volatile political situation in Egypt, "All constitute very serious problems – and dealing with serious problems requires serious people."

 

MK Amir Peretz (Labor) surprised the plenum by defending the government's actions vis-à-vis the latest round of escalation in the south: "To all those who say – 'let's topple Hamas' rule, let's take Gaza' – ask yourself one question: what will happen afterwards?

 

"We could pay a heavy price. The IDF is capable of executing such an order, the question is – do we want the IDF to rule the Strip?"

 

Peretz also lauded Iron Dome, and urged the Netanyahu to put an end to the Defense Ministry and Treasury's debate over its budget.
