The designated minister for national security, the chairman of Otzma Yehudit Itamar Ben Gabir is speaking at this time in the Knesset, before the first vote on the amendment to the Police Order Law. Ben Gabir was speaking ahead of the vote on the law that would transfer powers to him from the police, MKs from the opposition protested during his speech: "Democracy is not You are interested."

Ben Gabir attacked the opposition from the podium of the Knesset and said: "I hope the cameras record that there is no opposition. This proposal is historic. It comes to correct an order from 1926, before the State of Israel existed. We are in 2022, things have changed. The country has progressed, we have progressed. But there is one thing that remains the same, and that is this old-fashioned order that corresponds to the days of the British Mandate. Its proposal comes to place the State of Israel alongside many democratic countries. In all democracies, the minister in charge of the police is the one who outlines the policy. The minister is the one who takes responsibility, and who comes to take responsibility You also need to get the authority. The Minister of National Security bears responsibility and claims if there are omissions,

Ben Gvir addressed the criticism of the former Minister of Internal Security Amir Ohana in relation to the Miron disaster.

"They said he was passive and uninvolved. And suddenly when there is someone who wants to intervene, take responsibility and change everyone's reality - they immediately jump in. Suddenly they shout robbery and corruption. The amendment we are bringing is a blessing to democracy. The government is the one who decides, but democracy is the one that interests you. You are not Liberals and unable and unable to accept that there are different opinions, it is unpleasant to say, but you do not correspond with the democratic system of government that is from you onwards."

Ben Gvir attacked the former commissioners Roni Elshich and Moshe Karadi. "Roni Elshich, a failed commissioner, moves from studio to studio. Six months ago it was Omar Bar Lev, suddenly they talked about the minister having no powers. And suddenly it's Ben Gvir, it's different. Moshe Karadi was a police commissioner, also moving from studio to studio and attacking.

I met with his friends, I don't understand how you are not ashamed.

The Zeiler Committee is a government committee.

The committee was headed by the judge.

Hope you accept that there are judges in the State of Israel.

You do not understand the essence of democracy.

It's amazing that the members of the opposition say that a court will overturn you - how do you know?

Do you have contact with the court?

Someone on the committee tells me - the High Court is our home court."
