Cameron: Arab MKs Heckling Indicates True Democracy


British Prime Minister David Cameron commented on the heckling by Arab MKs during his visit to the Knesset on Wednesday. He said the fact that opposing views exist in the Knesset demonstrated democracy in action  . 

"Think about all those who do not have a parliament, they do not have democracy, they do not have a voice," PM Cameron stated, explaining that Israelis should feel proud of the fact that arguments exist in their legislature. He added that he was warned by the ambassador before his speech that there could be a "balagan", Hebrew slang for a big mess.
