MK Ayoub Kara calls his Likud party ‘Nazis’ after failure in primary

Likud MK Ayoub Kara, who failed to secure a realistic spot on the ruling party’s slate in the upcoming elections, lashed out today at party officials in Jerusalem and called its members “Nazis,” Channel 13 news reports.

The incident reportedly took place in Jerusalem, during discussions of appeals against the decision to let Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secure candidates of his choice on the Likud slate.

Kara shouted at officials that “Likud staff are German Nazis. It’s a mafia controlled by Amsalem and Bitan.”

MKs David Amsalem and David Bitan have been two of the most sharp-tongued party members in the last Knesset, frequently viewed as loyalists of Netanyahu who do much of the “dirty work” lambasting political rivals and dissidents within party ranks.
