MKs from Likud, Yisrael Beytenu and Balad exchanged insults at a Knesset Education Committee meeting on Monday, as Miri Regev (Liked) implied that Jamal Zahalke (Balad) was a terrorist, and Zahalke responded by saying that Regev incites against Arabs.

Discussing a "Nakba Day" event being held on the Tel Aviv University campus, Regev stated that it should take place in Gaza, not in Israel. Zahalke responded by asking rhetorically: "Is this the Education Committee or the Inquisition?"



Zahalke stated that "Regev should not be allowed on campus because she incites against Arabs all the time," to which Regev responded "Yes, only terrorists are allowed."

Yisrael Beytenu MK Moshe Matalon chimed in, saying that the Arab MKs represent terrorists and "in any other country they would be hanged in the town square."
