Eitam Tells Arabs MKs: We Will Expel You for Incitement

National Union Knesset Member Effie Eitam told Arab MKs who participated in violent demonstrations against Israel Tuesday, "You fight against us...and the day will come when we will you expel you from this house" and from the country. The acting Knesset Speaker expelled Arab MK Jamal Zahalka from the Knesset chambers after he accused MK Eitam of killing children in Gaza, when he was senior IDF commander.
Tuesday's protest, in which several Arab MKs participated, included rock-throwing incidents against Israeli police. MK Eitam told the Arab MKs that their hate cannot be tolerated in a democracy.
