Left-wing activist in Knesset demands right to carry weapons to protect Palestinians

A left-wing activist causes an outcry in the Knesset after suggesting he should be given permission to carry firearms in the West Bank to fend off violent settlers.

“Give us the permission to use weapons, we’ll do the job for the Palestinians,” says Haim Shadmi.

He is interrupted by Meretz’s Issawi Frej, a minister, who tells him “that’s inappropriate, you got carried away.”
