MK Eldad to Host 30 Nation Anti-Jihad Convention

Knesset Member Arieh Eldad (National Union-National Religious Party) announced Wednesday that he will be hosting a convention in Jerusalem under the banner, "Standing Up to Jihad."

The right-wing MK told reporters Wednesday morning that the anti-jihad conference will be held in December and will be attended by some 30 European lawmakers from Denmark, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland and Britain.

"There are 60 million Muslim immigrants in Europe, and they have not necessarily come there to be assimilated into society, but rather to resist it from the inside. The feeling in Europe is that the time has come to stop jihadist Islam, and this may be the last opportunity," he explained.
