MK (Yahadut Hatorah) Moshe Gafne was ousted from a session of the Knesset Finance Committee on Wednesday, 5 Marcheshvan, after accusing Slomiansky of taking the money from yeshivos. “The money intended for talmidim from abroad you took for your settlements, leaving avreichim without a shekel” Gafne shouted.
Not willing to hear additional accusations from Gafne, Slomiansky instructed security personnel to escort Gafne out of the session. Gafne shouted “It is not a big kovod to sit with you. You hate chareidim! You hate chareidim!”
As Gafne was being escorted out Slomiansky, who is a member of the dati leumi Bayit Yehudi party responded “Do not be sanctimonious for in the eyes of the chareidi community, they all know the truth about you”.
As security personnel were removing Gafne MK (Yahadut Hatorah) Yaakov Litzman added “Get your hands off of him”, then pushing the security agent away from Gafne. Gafne then left out on his own without the security escort. Litzman then added “There is corruption here. There is corruption. I know what I am talking about.”
Security then tried to escort Litzman out but he quickly moved away telling them “Knowing is ousting me. Get your hands off of me. No one lays a hand on me”.
