During Tuesday`s meeting of the Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality, Chairwoman MK Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) addressed fellow committee member MK Hanin Zoabi`s earlier remarks regarding the kidnapping of three Israeli yeshiva students.

”How dare you say the kidnappers are not terrorists?” Lavie asked.

In response, MK Zoabi (National Democratic Assembly) said: ”You are rude. You do not deserve to be chairperson of this committee. Are you a police officer? You are a racist.”
