Knesset to discuss the disqualification of Hadash leader Ofer Kasif

The Knesset will discuss a motion to disqualify Hadash co-leader Ofer Kasif on Wednesday.

Now holding the position usually reserved for a Jewish member in the Communist party, Kasif has a history of provocative statements.

In the past Kasif called Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked “neo-Nazi scum.” Former Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman “a son of Adolf” and called Jews who visit Temple Mount “cancer.”
