NU/NRP MK Uri Ariel is set to register a complaint Sunday with the Knesset Ethics Committee against MK Abbas Zakour of the United Arab List, who, according to Ariel, incited Arab rioters to harm Jews in Acre.
Zakour, Ariel said, had called upon Arab youths to rush to the scene of the conflict, where an Arab driver had driven through a Jewish neighborhood late on the eve of Yom Kippur, sparking the clashes. The youths then proceeded to the scene and began pelting the local residents with rocks.
"If on Yom Kippur 2008 in the state of Israel a crowd of Arabs can yell "death to the Jews" and vandalize Jewish property then there is no coexistence," Ariel said. "We must treat this with all due gravity."
