MK Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List - Ta'al) on Wednesday said that when Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman talks about a commission of inquiry into left-wing NGOs, he means "dungeons of inquiry."

The MK was speaking at a Knesset session to vote on proposed legislation to establish commissions of inquiry into the activities and funding of left-wing NGOs.

Criticizing the bill and its proponents, Tibi said that the Knesset continued to follow in the path of "McCarthyism" and accused the right of leading the country "from one low point to another and from bad to worse."

He further accused the right of figuratively "assassinating the prime minister" and planning to "assassinate a Supreme Court Judge soon."
