      MK: 'Rabbis For Human Rights' Distributes Anti-Semitic Material

      Jewish Home MK Zevulun Kalfa requests that group's freedom of speech be revoked on grounds of anti-Semitism.

      Kalfa cited a video posted to the organization's website which compares the forced deportation of Jews in the Former Soviet Union to the decisions made by the Prawer plan, which regulates Bedouin construction in the Negev. The plan is set to legalize some Bedouin communities in the region, and relocate and give compensation to others, in an attempt to monitor what many have claimed is a widespread land-grabbing effort on the part of the Bedouin community.
