In a conference titled “conclusions from the Holocaust” organized by the “Holocaust Lessons Caucus,” led by National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari, left-wing activists were compared to kapos – Jewish collaborators with the Nazis, and anarchists were described as Nazis. In addition to MK Ben-Ari, the discussion was attended by MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union), Yonatan Yosef, speaker of the Jewish settlement in Sheikh Jarrah, David Bedein, and Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of the Temple Institute.
