MKs on Left and Right slam Ghattas for calling Binyamin Brigade Commander ‘murderer’

Less than a week after disembarking from the planned Gaza flotilla, MK Basel Ghattas (Joint List) courted controversy again Sunday, proposing an urgent motion to the Knesset’s agenda in which he called Binyamin Brigade Commander Col. Israel Shomer a cold-blooded murderer.

Last Friday morning, Palestinians attacked Shomer’s car with rocks near a-Ram in the West Bank. The officer fired warning shots, and then opened fire and killed one of the attackers, Muhammad al-Casba, 17.

Ghattas sent copies of the motion to MKs from the House’s various factions, asking them to sign it, as well.
