The Balad party and others like it, should be removed from parliament altogether, especially so since they banned the Kach party.
Likud MK Regev interrupts Balad MK’s speech, asks Knesset Speaker Edelstein to check if Arab MK allowed to wear keffiyeh in Knesset.
Likud MK Miri Regev caused an uproar in the Knesset on Wednesday when she accused Balad MK Basel Ghattas of incitement as he addressed the forum wrapped in a keffiyeh, considered by some to be a sign of Palestinian nationalism.
Regev interrupted Ghattas as he was calling on Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch to resign over the current security tensions in Israel and the shooting of an Israeli Arab by police in Kafr Kana over the weekend.
“There is an Arab MK here in a keffiyeh. I request that the Knesset speaker check if, according to Knesset bylaws, an Arab MK is allowed to speak at the Knesset in a keffiyeh,” Regev said.
Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein responded that, “like we can come to the Knesset with kipas, he can come in a keffiyeh.”
