Commitee Won't Publish Mofaz Report


The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee will not publish a report authored by committee chairman  Shaul Mofaz on the efforts of the Palestinian Authority to secure UN recognition for the Arab state they plan to declare in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem next month. Mofaz prepared the report with the help of outside groups, and it was said to be highly critical of the government.

MKs in the coalition moved to prevent publication of the report, and accused Mofaz of playing politics. The MKs said that they would not allow publication of the report in the Committee's name, and would insist that it be published as Mofaz's personal opinion.
