TYT: 1/3 of Israeli MPs also Critical of Trump

More from The Young Turks about Trump. I blogged this morning about how Cameron was ignoring a petition, signed by 300,000 people, to ban Trump from entering our fair country. It seems Britain isn’t the only country. At the eastern end of the Med, 37 members of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, have signed a petition against Trump, criticising Netanyahu’s decision to meet him. As The Turks’ anchors Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola point out, this is a third of all the members of the Israeli legislature. The Arab parties in particular also aren’t impressed. Ahmed Tibi, a spokesman for the Arab party in the Israeli legislature, has called him a neo-Nazi and demanded that he should be banned from setting foot in Israel.

The Turks also discuss the British petition, and point out that Trump’s comments about Muslims, and also Mexicans and others, would constitute hate speech according to the law in many European countries. They’re right, but unfortunately, Cameron doesn’t seem to think it applies in this case. Here’s the video.
