Pasternak Asks for Disqualification of Dannon and Regev


Labor Party primaries candidate, Oren Pasternak, will ask the election committee to disqualify the candidacy of MKs Miri Regev and Danny Danon, arguing that his request was "a result of incitement to racism and the denial of Israel's character as a Jewish and democratic state."

The request comes after the Left criticized the two MKs for attending an anti-migration demonstration against the influx of African migrants, accusing the MKs of fanning the flames at the protest.
 
"These are two agitators who crossed all limits when inciting the crowd to break police barricades, resulting in Israel's 2012 version of Kristallnacht," said Pasternak.
