      Herzog Condemns Attack on Tibi

      Opposition leader MK Yitzchak Herzog (Labor) condemned on Thursday the incident in which a Jewish man threw hot tea in the face of MK Ahmed Tibi.

      "The attack on MK Tibi should turn on a red light in terms of the attitude towards elected officials in Israel," said Herzog, adding, “The discourse in Israel is becoming increasingly violent and at the end another crazy person could end up carrying out a criminal act. Today it is hot tea and tomorrow it could be a knife or a gun.”
