MK Faina Kirshenbaum (Yisrael Beitenu) received hatemail which stated that “A committee of inquiry should be established for all the whores, all the drunks, all the thieves, and all the hooligans. As they say, a good Russian is a dead Russian.” According to Kirshenbaum “expressions of violence, incitement, and racism should be outside of the public discourse. I find such expressions of violence most serious and have brought the matter to the attention of the Knesset Security Officer.”
