The Arab MKS accused the Israeli ones of being pyromaniacs and wanting to set off the Third Intifada.
They would probably have refused, and yet Netanyahu would have had a comfortable majority of more than 70 MKS.
The reactions of Arab MKS to the Israeli attacks on Gaza also made the news.
The Israeli MKS responded by calling their Arab counterparts savages and Arafat lovers.
Currently, Netanyahu has 68 Members of Knesset in his coalition—only seven more than the minimum majority of 61 MKS.
He failed to reprimand the MKS in question, implicitly suggesting that in the Likud, support for two states is optional at best.
MKS is among the firms collecting royalties for natural-gas extraction.
And before any of the MKS could answer, another student almost leapt out of his seat screaming, "The occupation corrupts!"
And yet I wonder if these Yisrael Beiteinu MKS see the irony.
That MKS was formerly a rich and important city, is proved by its many ruined tombs and monuments.
