Labor MK Raleb Majadele on Wednesday criticized what he called the "poor treatment" of the country's minorities during a Knesset session to vote on legislation proposing the establishment of committees to probe left-wing NGOs.

"If you don't care for the minority, the world will judge you," he said noting how haredim "are paid to pray, while I, who prays five times a day, get nothing."

The Labor MK called on other MKs to "climb down from your tree, take care of Israeli society, and stop inciting the minority."
