Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan was removed from a Knesset discussion on changes to the coalition on Wednesday when he told Kadima MK Yohanan Plessner, "You're acting like an Arab," Army Radio reported.

Plessner had addressed the Knesset out of turn when Erdan directed the remarks at him.

Labor MK Ghaleb Majadleh, who was leading the meeting, responded that he was a "proud Palestinian Arab" and told Erdan to leave.
