After the incident, Michaeli was unrepentant: "Majadle will learn not to insult women. He hurt the honor of the Knesset and of this place. The times when a man can curse a woman in public, offend her and act violently are over. Times have changed."
A recent study by the nationalist organization Mattot Arim ranked Dr. Michael Ben Ari of National Union number two in terms of Knesset members "most loyal to the right-wing's agenda in the Knesset term that just ended." (The Likud's Danny Danon finished first.)
In response to the action of the Likud Elections committee that bumped me from the 20th to the 36th spot on the Likud Knesset list, I have received numerous phone calls from attorneys urging me to appeal to the Israeli Supreme Court.
