Eli Avidar is well aware of the dissonance between his diplomatic and business record and his unfettered, almost violent behavior in the Knesset. For example, during Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech in the debate over the normalization agreement with the United Arab Emirates, the Yisrael Beiteinu lawmaker shouted, “Go home, we’ll get to you at Balfour!” – referring to the prime minister’s official residence in Jerusalem – and was thrown out of the chamber.
