Quote of the Day (qotd)

David Rotem, MK from the Yisrael Beiteinu, gets the qotd award for his response to Ahmed Tibi.

Likud MK Ofir Akunis tried to propose cutting short the upcoming Knesset spring vacation and cause the MKs to work until Pesach, and only get vacation for the week of Pesach itself. He says it is inappropriate that we have such a long vacation, especially after we have only just begun working. Most MKs opposed the proposal (of course).

MK Ahmed Tibi attacked Akunis saying, "Every time there are new MKs, they attack the Knesset. They should wait a bit patiently. There is nothing wrong with the Knesset getting vacation. There are MKs like myself who did not rest the whole tenure (of the past Knesset term). Corresponding to that there are MKs whop spent all their time sitting in the coffee shops of Tel Aviv, were chosen on large party lists, and are suddenly surprised that we get a vacation."

David Rotem responded to Tibi, "I saw yesterday that you went on vacation when we sang HaTikvah in the Knesset plenum..".

Bidda-Boom, Bidda-Bang!


  1. Tibi is hands down my favorite MK! I have had a hunch for a ling time he's a Shabak agent.

  2. I like Tibi because he is intelligent, interesting and can put up a decent fight. I like him, like I like Yossi Sarid, Zahva Galon, and a few others. I can respect MKs that are polar opposites of what i believe, but there are not many that qualify. Tibi is one of the ones that do.

  3. So you like an enemy agent; that is not something to be proud of.

  4. I guess "like" is the wrong word. I don't like Tibi. I respect him as a worthy adversary in the political realm, perhaps.

  5. How about making schools operate on the same proposed vacation schedule?
