MK Zvi Hendel (NU/NRP) on Sunday called for all Arab MKs to be evicted from the Knesset, following comments by Science, Culture and Sport Minister Ghaleb Majadle - Israel's first Arab minister - that he would not sing "Hatikva." "How many more times will we take the Arab MKs spitting in our faces and insist on pretending that it's raining?" Hendel said. "The Arab MKs, who continue again and again to fearlessly incite against the Jewish people, its symbols and its holy places, and cooperate with the most bitter and hateful enemy must get out of the Knesset." He called on all Zionist Knesset members to unite and ensure that such a move was carried out. Majadle said in an interview over the weekend that he refused to sing "Hatikva" because it was an Israeli national anthem.
