Just when you thought things couldn’t get much lower in the Knesset lawmaking-wise, in comes Yisrael Beitenu MK Anastasia Michaeli and throws us into the abyss of violence. Here’s how she behaved towards Arab Labor MK Ghaleb Majadele during a hearing about the principal who decided to take his students to a human rights march in the Arab town of Arara in the Galilee.
I didn’t hear of not even one Jewish school to be invited to a hearing
What? You have a different policy for the Arab sector?
You take steps against the country!
Shut up! Don’t interrupt!
Don’t talk to me like this!
Don’t interrupt! You’ve got nerve!
You’re showing no respect for women! Nor for the Knesset!
Don’t interrupt me! Shut up! She’s from your party, shut her up!
He shouldn’t be allowed to talk like that in the Knesset!
We’re not in “the hood” now.
This isn’t the Yisrael Beitenu committee, this is the Sports, Education and Culture committee. I demand you stop her
I don’t want her to interrupt me!
Do you want to continue?
I want you as the chairman to take care of your party colleague!
Either you take her out or you shut her up! One of the two!
I heard you.
I won’t accept it. No one will be his own judge.
and no one will behave with a school as they wish.
The party’s over! The military rule is over!
The military rule ended in 1966!
You should be ashamed!
Hey, what are you doing!
Mr. chairman, this sums it up.
It’s a shame she is in your party.
I’m sure you won’t tolerate this kind of wild, impudent and fascist behavior.
But I’ll tell you, I’m not even shaken up.
You see? I’m not shaken up.It was expected.
This person disgusts me. I can’t say it any more directly than that.
She, and probably most of her party colleagues, think the worst of Arabs. They think they are the light unto nations, bringing European, civilized culture to Israel and its parliament.
You tell me, who is civilized? Who is the primitive one?
This is what happens when the right wing is drunk with power.
It won’t end with water.
UPDATE: YNET reports: “The Knesset’s Ethics Committee decided Tuesday to suspend MK Anastassia Michaeli (Yisrael Beiteinu) from the Knesset plenum and all committees for a period of one month following Monday’s incident where she threw water in MK Ghaleb Majadele’s face during a Knesset’s Education, Culture and Sports Committee meeting.”
