JERUSALEM— “When a terrorist supporter is brought into the Knesset, don’t act surprised when he pulls out his gun,” speak Israel’s left-wing congressman Michal Rozin on Twitter, following an incident early Wednesday morning in which one of her fellow lawmakers fired a weapon at two unarmed garage workers.
Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, erupted after videos emerged showing Itamar Ben-Gvir — a follower of the notorious, radical rabbi Meir Kahane, whose political party has been declared a terrorist organization by Israel and the United States, and is the only Israeli lawmaker found guilty of supporting terrorist organization—Pull a handgun out of its holster and wave it at two young Arab garage workers in a parking lot at Tel Aviv’s largest convention center.

The two flight attendants, who recorded the iPhone video for the police, asserted that he then added “Arab dogs!”
A longtime extremist agitator, the 45-year-old was first elected to parliament in March 2021, following an election deal brokered by the then prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was hoping fanatical vote of the right will help him hold power. Ben-Gvir first appeared on Israeli television at the age of 19, when he was interviewed while holding the Cadillac logo, he tore up the car of then prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, boasting, “We go to his car. We will also get to himA few weeks ago Rabin, who had led Israel to the Oslo Peace Accords with the Palestinians, was assassinated by another right-wing extremist.
On Wednesday, Ben-Gvir said he feared his life was threatened by two guards, who were unarmed, armed only with phones and walkie-talkies and essentially smaller than the lawmaker.
“It could end with a murder,” he said in a statement, in which he falsely asserted that the two car keepers were in police custody.

Ben-Gvir was found guilty of inciting racism and supporting a terrorist organization in 2007, when he was found guilty of wearing reading marks, “Deport the Arab Enemy” and “Rabbi Kahane Was Right: The Arab MKs Are the Fifth Column” in the Jerusalem protests.

Videos of what appears to be an unharmed Ben-Gvir have raised many questions in Israel, where strict gun control laws prevent most civilians, much less any citizen, from being harmed. convicted of having terrorist sympathies, carrying or possessing a firearm.
In a formal query, Left-wing Knesset member Mossi Raz The police minister asked Omer Bar-Lev to explain under what circumstances “is an individual with a criminal record allowed to carry a firearm and, if so, why?”

The two security guards, who have not been named, were backed by their employers, who released a statement that they “did their jobs as required and behaved in accordance with expectations”.
According to officers, they approached Ben-Gvir after he parked his car illegally and asked him to move it to a marked location. In response, he pulled out his gun and shouted “Don’t threaten me! I’ll fuck you, Arabian dogs! ”
Since his election, he has been embroiled in numerous public conflicts.
In June, police banned Ben-Gvir from marching through Jerusalem’s Old City’s Muslim Quarter, just a month after Jewish-Arab clashes tore through the city during fighting that broke out between Israel and Israel. and Hamas, the Muslim militia that governs the Gaza Strip.
To defy law enforcement, Ben-Gvir still marched to a flashpoint at the Damascus Gate, where he claimed that congressional immunity superseded a police order.
In July, he was dragged from the Knesset podium after hurling the word “terror” at Ahmad Tibi, a veteran lawmaker and representative of the Arab Majority Mixed List who was acting as Speaker Knesset’s fake.
