Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein ordered the legislature’s security to assign bodyguards to Knesset Interior Committee chairman David Amsalem (Likud) after he received several threats to his life.

Police recommended the move on Monday, after Amsalem received a letter in his Knesset mailbox that said "we will cut out your tongue, we will murder you."

Amsalem is behind some of the most controversial bills on the Knesset’s docket in recent months, making him a frequent guest on radio and television programs. His proposals include the “police recommendations bill,” which was long seen as a way to help Netanyahu escape indictment at the close of investigations against him, and the bill to have the state fund candidates’ primaries campaigns.
