Knesset Considers Withdrawing from Inter-Parliamentary Union for Invitation to Hamas

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin sent a letter on Monday to the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s Secretary-General, Anders B. Johnsson, expressing “severe disappointment” with the organization’s decision to invite Hamas to participate in a human rights meeting in Geneva.

Rivlin also notified Johnsson that the Knesset “will consider its future in the organization,” noting that Johnsson had pledged during a visit last month that Hamas would not be invited to participate in the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
