Peace Now secretary-general Yariv Oppenheimer on Monday said he would appeal Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin's "hasty and scandalous decision" to ban him from entering the premises. Rivlin's decision came after activists from the left-wing group posed as students and attempted to persuade right-wing MKs to release statements that would be used to portray Israel's political Right negatively in a documentary. "Everyone who was interviewed knew that he was being interviewed in front of a camera, and was given freedom of speech," Oppenheimer said in a statement. "Every attempt to silence voices proves that maybe people are embarrassed of their viewpoints."
