Mazuz to investigate Tartman for Majadle remarks

Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz announced on Sunday morning that he planned to investigate whether MK Esterina Tartman broke the law when she made allegedly racist statements regarding the appointment of Arab MK Ghaleb Majadle as a minister. "We have to purge this terrible plague from our midst," Tartman said following Labor Chairman Amir Peretz's nomination of Majadle for science, culture and sport minister. "The State of Israel is a Jewish state, and it's supposed to by run according to Jewish values."
