The Knesset will be lacking one of its more colorful Knesset Members for two weeks following an Ethics Committee decision to punish Haredi MK Meir Porush for handcuffing himself to the Knesset podium last July in an outstanding theatrical appearance..

MK Porush was enraged over the bill, now law, that almost all Haredi youth must serve in the IDF. Porush, a member of the United Torah Judaism party, stole the show with his handcuffing act, which lasted for several minutes until guards were able to unlock the handcuffs and separate Porush from the podium.

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein filed a complaint with the Ethics Committee, which now has decided that the honorable MK insulted the honor of the legislature.

  1. “which now has decided that the honorable MK insulted the honor of the legislature.”

    Didn’t Kadima bring chemical spray into the Knesset and use it during session to ‘protest’ a stinky deal not too long ago?

    Then of course there is Zoabi and Balad…

    Yea, no double standard here.
