During a debate in the Knesset committee – dealing with the forfeiture of pay and other benefits from an MK who does not show up for an interrogation, a trial, or the carrying out of his sentence – the chairman of the Balad party, Dr. Jamal Zahalaka, said (Hebrew) to the chairman of the committee, MK Yariv Levin (Likud): “You are a spiritual pygmy, and unfit for serving in your position”. Zahalaka added that Levin “is a racist and a fascist”. This came after Levin told Zahalaka that he shouldn’t serve in the Knesset and that he is a supporter of terrorist organization.
