Likud MK Oren Hazan on Monday night captured on film part of a screaming match he had with Zionist Union MK Ayelet Nahmias-Verbin in the Knesset parking lot.
According to the opposition MK, the outburst began when Hazan “started yelling at me unprovoked that I am subhuman.” Hazan, meanwhile, accused Nahmias-Verbin of calling him “zero,” and “garbage” and “the punishment of the Likud.”
In the video, Nahmias-Verbin can be seen screaming at Hazan: “You won’t call me subhuman.”
“Everyone thinks you are the punishment of the Likud,” she says.
The goading Likud legislator responds, “Ayelet, don’t get angry. Have some water. Calm down. Calm down. Calm down.
“I can’t hear you. You aren’t screaming loud enough. Don’t you know how to speak in a dignified manner?” he says.
Both lawmakers can be seen held back by Knesset employees in the parking lot.
The clip was uploaded on Hazan’s Facebook page and captioned, “The ugly face of the left in all its glory.”
Nahmias-Verbin member wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that when Hazan “refused my demands to get away from me and not speak to me, and even followed me to the parking lot, I responded harshly.”
“And yes, with yelling. These were the screams of 118 Knesset members,” she said, alluding to Hazar’s notoriety in parliament.
Since entering the Knesset last year, Hazan has butted heads with numerous lawmakers and mocked one for her disability. He was suspended for a month in December from parliamentary and committee debates over a series of complaints of ethical wrongdoing.
