      Bedouin MKs Removed from Knesset at Resettlement Debate

      Several Members of Knesset of Arab and Bedouin ethnicity were removed from the Knesset plenum on Monday during a debate on the Prawer-Begin Plan. MK Taleb Abu Arar (United Arab List) called former minister Benny Begin a "racist" who "hates Arabs."

      Begin helped formulate the plan for illegal Bedouin settlement in the previous administration and made an appearance at the Knesset to discuss the controversial bill which has varying degrees of compensating, relocating and evicting existing housing structures.
