Acting Knesset Speaker Moshe Feiglin ousted, one by one, three Arab Knesset Members from the Knesset on Sunday after they called Israeli soldiers “murderers.” The action was caught on the YouTube below. The audio is in Hebrew, but the visible anger of the Arab MKs and the reaction by MK Feiglin are worth 1,000 words. MK Ibrahim Sarsur started the action by citing Palestinian Authority Arabs who were “murdered” by IDF “heroes.” Feiglin pointed his arm at him and told him to leave the podium after repeating his accusation. Sarsur continued his rant, and Feiglin pointed in the direction of Knesset guards, who forcibly escorted the dishonorable Knesset Member out of the chamber. “Get out. Get out. Get out,” Feiglin told Sarsur, who got in his last licks by accusing Feiglin of “representing the Nazis.” “I announce to Knesset Members that anyone who labels soldier as murderers will not remain in the session, not even for a second,” Feiglin declared. Next up was Masud Ganaim, who said, “You butchered. You murdered. The army is an army of murderers, and you can expel me,” which Feiglin promptly did. Number three was Ahmed Tibi, who disturbed remarks from the podium by MK Elazar Stern. Tibi’s comments were inaudible.
