If other democratic countries can expel criminals from parliament, so too can Israel

State president Reuven Rivlin, of all people, made a fool of himself by opposing a bill that could allow expulsion of Knesset members who support terrorists. So now, the prime minister's had to defend the bill:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to criticism of the suspension bill during a Likud faction meeting on Monday, listing various democratic countries that allow for the expulsion of parliament members through a government vote.

The suspension process as described in the bill would begin with a request signed by 61 MKs, which would have to be approved by at least three-quarters of the Knesset House Committee’s members, and then brought to the plenum where at least 90 lawmakers would have to vote in its favor for it to take effect.

"In the United States, this issue is enshrined in the Constitution," explained Netanyahu. "Congress can impeach a member due to misconduct with a two-thirds majority vote."

"In England, a member of Parliament can be suspended for violating the rules of Parliament or for standing in contempt of Parliament with a simple majority vote," said Netanyahu.

"Additionally, a member of the lower house can be dismissed permanently from his position without the right to appeal with a simple majority if the majority of the members of the house believe him to be unfit for the job, and in Canada, the lower house can expel a member due to misconduct," he continued.
And if they can do so, then Israel can too. Those who only run for Knesset to disrespect the country have no business drawing monstrosities, if they intend to continue that way.
