MK Akunis Seeks Incitement Probe of MK Agbaria

Deputy Knesset Speaker Ofir Akunis asked the Attorney General's Office, Friday, to open a criminal investigation of Member of Knesset Afou Agbaria (Hadash), after Agbaria published a picture on his Facebook page of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as a murderer with blood-stained hands and blood-splattered clothes at the start of the Pillar of Defense counter-terror operation.

Akounis said, "The Arab Knesset members cross all red lines and compete among themselves for the greatest intensity and severity of incitement against the state of Israel. It's time to gather against the extremes of the Arab MKs and set limits for them. There is no place in the Knesset for an MK who published a picture of the Prime Minister with blood on his hands and an MK who stands for a moment of silence in memory of [terrorists viewed by Muslims as] martyrs - and we will continue to act so that there won't be."
