It was reported on 12 Mar 2014 that
”Haredi and Arab lawmakers from the opposition walked out of the Knesset session attended by British Prime Minister David Cameron after the government passed the controversial haredi enlistment bill.
The Haredi MKs walked out as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the podium to welcome Cameron and the Arab lawmakers waled out in a later stage of Netanyahu’s speech. ”
IMO, this behaviour is immature and rude – and can only harm ties between Israel and one of their strongest allies.
Surely even Charedi politicians understand how politics works?
Can anyone offer any defence of this behaviour?
I can’t defend the behavior, or even your assumption that Chareidi politicians understand politics.
