Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office released a statement Thursday saying that the PM roundly condemned Hatnua MK Amram Mitzna's comments in which the MK compared the Bayit Yehudi party to Hamas.
"There can be diverse opinions in the Knesset but the argument must maintain appropriate boundaries of truth and fairness. Mitzna's comments crossed both of these boundaries," Netanyahu said.
Mitzna on Thursday compared coalition mate Bayit Yehudi to Hamas, "if you subtract the terror."
Speaking in an Israel Radio interview, Mitzna said, "In Israel's government you have an organization, Bayit Yehudi, who works toward the same goals as Hamas."
