Police to probe MK Cohen for 'German' remark

Police have decided to investigate MK Ya'acov Cohen (United Torah Judaism) for his remark that provoked Justice Ministry attorney Amnon Dehartuch to slap him in the face during a heated argument in the Knesset on July 10, Channel Two reported on Sunday. During a row over the budget allocation for religious communities, Cohen said: "You are worse than the Germans, you want to destroy the body and also the soul." The remark was particularly insensitive to Dehartuch, who lost 20 relatives in the Holocaust.
