Tibi Does it Again; Calls MK 'Racist,' 'Just Like Kahane'


For the second time in a day, MK Ahmed Tibi engaged in a shouting match with Jewish MKs, when he called MK Nissim Ze'ev (Shas) a “Kahanist” for comments he made during a discussion before the approval of a law raising the legal marriage age to 18. Ze'ev said that the law was necessary to protect Jewish girls from Arabs, who attempted to seduce them, marry them, and hold them captive in their villages. “Muslims have no problem marrying Jewish girls, since as far as they are concerned, the religion of the children will be determined patrilineally, and they will consider them Muslims.”
