MK Ofir Akonis said Monday that he was not willing to back any bills proposed by MK Ahmed Tibi.

Akonis made the announcement in the Knesset plenary and explained that he opposes Tibi's support for the Libyan backed aid ship headed for Gaza.

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said that the remarks were inappropriate.
