The Yisrael Beytenu leader vowed that his party would work to make it illegal for said Hamas representatives to be MKs.

Balad leader MK Jamal Zahalke said that Liberman's comments reveal his true face.

"Liberman is diplomatically moderate when facing the Americans so that he can boost his prestige, while at the same time being racist against Arabs in a cheap bid for popularity and votes. This is the new Liberman - the racist moderate," Zahalke stated.
