An uproar in the plenary session: “Ofer Kasif compared the victim of the attack in Jerusalem to a terrorist”

“I want to convey my condolences to all the victims of the occupation, Jews and Palestinians alike,” Kasif said. “Both today and yesterday, two 16-year-old boys were murdered, Aryeh Shchoupek who was murdered today and Ahmed Amjad Shahada who was murdered yesterday. We want this bloodshed to stop, and it will only stop when the occupation ends.”

Member of Knesset Simcha Rothman From “Religious Zionism” he wrote on Twitter in response: “Ofer Kasif is currently comparing the victim of today’s attack, who was on his way to a yeshiva, and a Palestinian who was present at the riots near Nablus and was killed by IDF soldiers. Whoever compares our soldiers to the vile terrorists, and the martyred martyrs to our enemies and those who wish us harm, is in the Knesset because of the trampling of a fundamental law: the Knesset by the judges of the Supreme Court.”

Chairman of “Torah Judaism”, member of the Knesset Rabbi Yitzhak Goldknopfhe also referred to Kassif’s words, saying: “I condemn the words of MK Ofer Kassif, who compared the murdered Yadav to terrorists who in his eyes are also victims of the occupation. Even if you have a distorted opinion, try to avoid expressing it on such a difficult day, When a family in Jerusalem buries their young son who was murdered for no wrongdoing. Your statement reveals an imperviousness to Jewish suffering.”

MK Ofer Kasif in response to his speech in the Knesset: “In the framework of the fascist deterioration, it is forbidden to talk about the occupation and its victims anymore, and the expression of sorrow for the death of a Palestinian boy as a Jewish boy hurts the ears of the racists in the Knesset. The occupation is responsible for the killing and bloodshed, of both Palestinians and Israelis, and the pain over the loss of life is shared. We will continue to fight to end the occupation and for peace that will stop the bloodshed.”
