Knesset Members Meir Sheetrit of Tzipi Livni’s HaTnuah party and Aliza Lavie of Lapid’s Yesh Atid) were able to thwart an anti-Israel initiative promoted by Palestinian Authority representatives at a meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Geneva this week.
The Arabs tried to insert an “emergency motion” into the agenda that called for all parliaments to boycott Israel and condemned settlement construction, Israel HaYom reported.
“Immediately after I landed in Geneva, I informed the heads of the organization that I had no intention of participating in meetings with Palestinian representatives unless they changed their intentions,” said Sheetrit. “The proposal that they put forward for the agenda hurts peace efforts and negotiations. Together with MK Lavie, I worked with all my might, and the Palestinians said today that they were pulling the motion.”
