The Knesset’s Ethics Committee has suspended Raam Taal MK Ahmad Tibi from participating in any Knesset sessions for a week, after he recited a poem disparaging Yisrael Beiteinu MK Anastassia Michaeli.

Tibi read the poem after Michaeli threw water at Labor MK Raleb Majadle during a committee session last week.

In the poem, Tibi spoke of Michaeli, “who  grew there in the garbage pile of Yisrael Beiteinu,” and used an Arabic profanity to describe the incident.
