An Israeli member or parliament walked out of an international conference held in Russia after Kuwait's chief lawmaker slammed his comments on imprisoned Palestinian lawmakers at an international conference on Wednesday.

“The saying ‘if you have no shame do as you please’ applies to the comments made by this rapist (Israeli) parliament,” National Assembly Speaker Marzouq al-Ghanim told lawmakers gathered at Inter-Parliamentary Union talks, Kuwait’s news agency, KUNA, reported.

During a discussion about the state of Palestinian lawmakers arrested by Israeli authorities, Ghanim said this “represents the most dangerous types of terrorism - the terrorism of the state.”

“You should grab your bags and leave this hall as you have witnessed the reaction of every honorable parliament around the world,” he said, addressing the Israeli delegation.

“Leave now if you have one ounce of dignity, you occupier, you murderer of children,” he added.

The Israeli delegation left the talks following the remarks by Ghanim and several other parliaments.
