Religious Zionism leader Bezalel Smotrich calls Arab lawmakers “enemies,” in an angry outburst in the Knesset plenum during a debate over the opposition’s bill on immigration.

“I’m not talking to you — anti-Zionists, terror supporters, enemies. You’re here by accident because Ben Gurion didn’t finish the job,” he says in comments directed at Arab MKs.

The bill fails to muster support in the preliminary vote.
