Meretz MK Mossi Raz raises eyebrows after telling a high school student to “shut your mouth” during an address at the school.
Raz was speaking at the famed Blich high school in Ramat Gan, which regularly hosts politicians and is known for holding a mock election ahead of each national election. The MK was speaking about voters from both the Joint List and from the Religious Zionist party when a student interrupts from the audience.
Raz shouts over him “Shut up,” to the shock of some in the crowd, before repeating: “Shut your mouth.”
Raz’s speech is halted amid an uproar from the audience following his comment and as the student appears to be removed from the hall.
Raz later defends his actions on Twitter, writing: “Anywhere that Kahanists disrupt, Meretz will be there to stop them. Get used to it.”
