1Minister of Culture (Likud) Miri Regev on Wednesday, 15 Cheshvan, called on Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to ban Arab MK Basal Ghattas from the plenum after he snuck onto Har Habayis in defiance of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s ban. Not only did Ghattas defy the prime minister, but he spoke to the press and announced his actions were to show the prime minister he has now sovereignty over Jerusalem, Har Habayis or him as an Arab MK.

Regev explained the Arab MK’s actions were “provocative” and could lead to bloodshed.
