MK Shafir to Slomianski: Direct Funds to Gush Katif Evacuees

A clash broke out at a Knesset committee meeting marking the nine-year anniversary of the disengagement from Gush Katif, between MK Nissan Slomianski and MK Stav Shafir.

MK Shafir hurled harsh words at Slomianski, telling him that “Instead of transferring money to Elkana and Beit El, you should have transferred those funds to those removed from their homes in Gush Katif and those still suffering from terrorist attacks in the south.” Slomianski replied that “You (Shafir) should act out your performances somewhere else.”
