Foreign Minister Yair Lapid says the far-right Knesset members are the “ideological heirs” of Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin, Yigal Amir.

“Yigal Amir’s ideological heirs are today serving in Israel’s Knesset. Had we not performed the miracle of the ‘change government,’ they would be ministers in the government,” says the Yesh Atid leader.

He is interrupted by Religious Zionism leader Bezalel Smotrich and Shas chairman Aryeh Deri, who are escorted out of the plenum.
