The security guard quickly reported Bashir’s comments to the police and to Griff, who summoned the two for a hearing and consulted with Knesset legal adviser Eyal Yanon. Bashir’s entrance permit to the Knesset was then revoked.

After an inquiry into Bashir’s statement is completed, it will be decided whether to reinstate his entrance permit or revoke it permanently.

Ganaim said, “I strongly condemn these comments, but [Bashir] claims he said it in jest.”

    Bashir should be arrested. Besides that if the police are expecting violence at the soccer game then it should be cancelled.

    A very tasteless joke in these times, I would say.Everything must be taken seriously!
