Picture of the Day

from 12:00 clockwise: MKs Michal Biran (Labor), Yifat Kariv (Yesh Atid), Shuli Mualem Refaeli (Bayit Yehudi), Tamar Zanberg (Meretz), Michal Rozen (Meretz). Robert Ilatov (Likud Beiteinu), 
Ozeret, Moshe Gafni (Yahadut HaTorah), Yariv Levin (Likud Beiteinu), OzerFar right corner: MKs Aryeh Deri, Arial Attias

This photo was posted to Facebook by MK Yifat Kariv. The image was snapped while the Knesset was in a late session regarding the law proposal for expanding the committee for selection of judges to include women. the session was stormy, with the Haredi MKs extremely upset about the issue. MK Gafni even accused some of being anti-religious over it, and claimed this is delaying the arrival of Mashiach. Yet in the picture above he is sitting around chatting with the same MKs he had been screaming at just moments before.
I asked MK Dov Lipman about this, and this was his response:
People see MK Gafni and others scream from the Knesset podium and assume there is tremendous animosity. This leads to people outside the Knesset following with animosity on the streets. This picture was taken minutes after MK Gafni spoke in very strong terms against all of us and especially against MK Shuli Mualem Refaeli who is in the middle on the couch on the right. This happens regularly in the Knesset. We believe passionately about our ideologies but no one hates and there is constant dialog between all sides.
