    Water thrown at heated political meeting

    Member Anastassia Michaeli and Labor MK Ghaleb Majadele engage in heated exchange at Knesset Committee meeting (Published Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014)

    (NECN/Knesset TV) - A Knesset Committee meeting on Monday looked more like an episode of "Reality TV," than organized politics.

    Member Anastassia Michaeli and Labor MK Ghaleb Majadele engaged in a heated exchange.

    At issue -- the controversy over an Arab high school principal taking his students to a human rights march.

    At one point, both members told each other to "shut up."

    The argument reached a head when Michaeli appeared to be walking out of the meeting, returned to her seat, and as you see here, threw a glass of water in Majadele's face.

    She stormed out, and he threatened to report her to the ethics committee.
