United Torah Judaism MK Yisrael Eichler told Opposition leader and Kadima MK Tzipi Livni that she was “our enemy” Wednesday in a stormy Knesset debate over affordable housing.

Eichler made the comment in response to Livni’s haranguing of Housing and Construction Minister Ariel Atias of Shas for balking at granting affordable housing priority to those households where both partners work: “The housing minister’s decision is an insult to those [protesters] who went out to the streets.”

At this point in her remarks Eichler accused Livni of ceaselessly harassing the ultra-orthodox public, and continued to interrupt her until Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin ordered him removed from the session. Eichler shouted at Livni as he exited, saying “you’re our enemy.”
