Far-right Religious Zionism chairman Bezalel Smotrich told Arab lawmakers Wednesday that they "are here by mistake – because Ben-Gurion didn't finish the job and throw you out in 1948," in his most recent tirade against Arab Knesset members.

Smotrich made the remarks during a Knesset discussion on an immigration bill which Simcha Rothman – an MK from his party – tried to promote. He also called Arab lawmakers "terror supporters" and "enemies."
