A fight broke out during a discussion in the Knesset's Legislative Committee on Tuesday, at which Balad MK Azmi Bishara began swearing violently at Likud MK Gilad Erdan. The exchange of profanity came while the committee was discussing bill proposed by MK Zevulun Orlev (NU/NRP) that would revoke the citizenship of any MK who rejects Israel's right to exist as a democratic country or encourages acts of terrorism. Erdan said he planned to file a complaint with the Knesset's Ethics Committee banning Bishara from future Knesset discussions.
