National Union MK Uri Ariel encouraged the limitation of freedom of speech on Sunday, following a suspected terror attack in Tel Aviv.

"The attack testifies to the character and culture of our enemies," Ariel said. "Anyone who allows the Nakba myth to circulate and to spread as a legitimate narrative should not be surprised that Israeli Arabs are killing Jews in the streets."

He added: "Even in a democracy there are boundaries to freedom of expression, and the Nakba lie has clearly crossed them. The expression itself should be eliminated from the public discourse."
