UTJ member causes embarrassment and outrage with his irrational fantasy about supreme court

Yitzhak Pindrus, a Haredi Knesset member of the UTJ party, caused offense by stating he'd like to blow up the Israeli surpreme court:
United Torah Judaism MK Yitzhak Pindrus caused a political storm when the Walla news site revealed a recording of him saying he would like to blow up the Supreme Court.

“You know what my dream is? To bring a D9 [bulldozer] and blow up the building,” Pindrus said last week on Independence Day during a panel discussion at the Nehora high-school yeshiva in the Mevo Horon settlement north of Jerusalem.

Pindrus was debating Religious Zionist Party MK Simcha Rothman. Rothman is on the Judicial Selection Committee and spoke in favor of changing Israel’s legal establishment democratically.
This is exactly why we've reached the point where Bennett/Lapid hijacked the government. Because people like Pindrus, who tried to disguise his comments as "humor" are acting irresponsibly, proving to be some of the worst "loose cannons" in politics. What Pindrus has done draws attention away from more pressing issues like Islamofascism, and also obscures serious issues in Haredi society itself where there's sex offenses being committed behind closed doors. Just because Pindrus put a bulldozer into the conversation doesn't make his statement any less offensive.

This is exactly why the Likud should distance themselves from the Haredi parties, if they're going to keep allowing this kind of irrationality continue within their ranks.
