Movement for Quality Government calls for Zahalka investigation

Movement for Quality Gov

The Movement for Quality Government is demanding that the attorney-general open a criminal investigation concerning comments made by MK Jamal Zahalka (Balad) about Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Israel Radio reported. Zahalka was quoted as saying, "Defense Minister Ehud Barak enjoys listening to classical music and killing children," in reference to last year's Operation Cast Lead in Gaza. The movement asserts that the comments qualified incitement, thus justifying an attack on Barak.
