MK Otniel Shneller (Kadima) on Tuesday demanded that Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz open an investigation against MK Jamal Zahalka (Balad) on suspicion of incitement. Zahalka is currently on his way to Canada to participate in "Israel Apartheid week", and was quoted as saying that Israel's actions in the occupied territories are similar to those of South Africa under the apartheid regime, Army Radio reported Tuesday. Former Canadian justice minister Irwin Cotler, who is currently visiting Israel, claims that Zahalka has gone one step too far against the country he is supposed to represent. Jewish students in Montreal are expected to protest against Zahalka and the events in the program.
