The new Facebook page for Member of Knesset Moshe Gafni may not have been created by him or his staff. Associates of the longtime MK stated that the page was created by an outside source. The page was opened on April 30th and has over 200 followers. Many of the comments on the social network internet page expressed doubt as to the authenticity of the page.
MK Gafni has recently criticized other MKs for spending too much time posting press releases on Facebook and not enough time in the Knesset plenum. MK Gafni has been in the Knesset since 1988 and currently serves on the Lobby for the Status of the Teachers in Israel, the Lobby for the Integration of Disabled Children in the School System and the Lobby for Strengthening the Periphery.
