Israeli politician throws water at colleague in parliament.

Summary: Israeli politician Anastassia Michaeli has thrown a glass of water at a fellow member of parliament during a heated debate on Monday.

A member of Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman's right wing party has thrown a glass of water at a fellow member of parliament during a heated debate on Monday.

The incident took place during an Education Committee debate in parliament in which Raleb Majadele and Anastassia Michaeli were seen arguing.

"You are marching against the state," Michaeli shouted at Majadele, who answered back, "shut up."

"Not she nor anyone else will make us shut up, we will say whatever we want, despite what anyone says. This is the parliament here, we were elected for this. This is our right and our privilege. This is not the Yisrael Beitenu faction," Majadele shouted.

Michaeli finally threw a glass of water at Majadele before marching out of the committee.

Michaeli has been reprimanded in the past for physically confronting an Israeli Arab parliament member during a parliamentary session about an Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound ship that killed nine Turks.
