MK Hilik Bar (Zionist Union) refuses to be bowed by Itamar Ben-Gvir's threats against him on the Knesset Channel.

"So? I thought that I had seen everything. Until Itamar Ben-Gvir called me a provocator and threatened to sue me for libel. If it wasn't sad it would be funny. My confrontation with Ben-Gvir, the top provocator of the Messianic right, will come quickly (as expected) to strong talk," wrote Bar.

He continued: "The person who promised and has ensured that 'We will not get to Rabin,' may have since learned to tie a tie, but he remains exactly the same. Although he currently boasts the title of 'lawyer,' it is still the same person, with the same smile while he calls for releasing Yigal Amir, and with the same conduct that encourages incitement and eroding our social strength, just like a hungry mouse with Swiss cheese.

"What is certain, he has heard from me exactly what I think about him, without me holding back or blinking."

Ben-Gvir works with the legal defense organization Honenu and is currently representing one of the suspects in the Duma arson He and Bar recently had an explosive confrontation during a panel on the Knesset Channel. At one point Bar demanded that Ben-Gvir denounce the murders in Duma and call them "terror." Ben-Gvir responded by saying, "We should have more 'terror' like this."
