Knesset Holds Judea-Samaria Human Rights Panel


To mark Human Rights Day in the Knesset, MK Aryeh Eldad convened a panel at the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee to discuss human rights for Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria. MK Eldad said that many human rights organizations were conspicuously absent. 

Chairman MK David Rotem stated, "I know quite a few NGOs for human rights. However none of them showed up for the discussion this morning. Maybe these associations are not really concerned about human rights, but are political movements, under the guise of human rights organizations."
