Knesset Members Spar over Dromi Verdict


Knesset members from across the political spectrum were divided on Wednesday about the court verdict earlier in the morning exonerating farmer Shai Dromi from killing a Bedouin thief who infiltrated his property in 2007.

Arab Knesset members claimed that the court had made a racist decision. They were joined by MK Yuli Tamir who said the decision sanctioned a “wild west” attitude. On the other hand, MKs Danny Danon and Ronit Tirosh agreed with the decision.
