A Bahraini lawmaker, who set the Israeli flag alight in parliament last week in protest against the recent Israeli war on Gaza, has narrowly escaped punitive action by other MPs, a newspaper reported.

Bahraini MP, Osama Al-Tamimi, smuggled in fuel in parliament to torch the Israeli flag without any warning, the UAE-based Gulf News reported Wednesday.

While punitive action against Tamimi required a majority of 21 votes, 15 MPs supported the call to take action against him, 10 abstained from voting, and six others opposed transferring his case to the legislation committee to look into the case. Eight lawmakers, however, were not present at the weekly session.

Bahrain’s parliament speaker, Khalifa Al Dhahrani, warned that the parliament was on its way towards negative practices, urging fellow MPs to take punitive action against Tamimi.

“The case should have been transferred to the legislation committee to review it,” Gulf News reported him saying. “It was not a critical decision to be taken against the lawmaker, but rather against his actions. It was not right not to allow the committee to look into the various aspects of the case and draft a report.”

Other nine parliamentarians also filed a case against Tamimi in the legislation committee to decide on a stricter course of action to ensure this type of behavior by a MP not to be repeated.

Tamimi created a controversy last year when he threatened to hit a fellow MP with a booklet before he reportedly insulted a woman lawmaker during the session break. He was subsequently suspended for five sessions.

Evil is in their heart. All of them can't think out of that box. I mean the diabolic malevolent way of thinking and life. What a tragedy.
