A fierce war of words broke out in the Knesset Monday between Hadash MK Afo Agbaria and Likud's Ophir Akunis when the former was serving as deputy speaker. The clash broke out when the Hadash MK said that Israel had killed 1,000 people in "cold blood" during Operation Cast Lead. Akunis demanded that Agbaria apologize and wipe the statement from the Knesset protocol, but the Hadash MK refused and acting Speaker Muhammad Barakei said that he could not "censor" an MK.
