MK Ben Eliezer Cancels Visit of Right-Wing Delegation

Knesset Speaker MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor) on Tuesday banned MK Nissim Ze'ev (Shas) from hosting a delegation of right-wing politicians and activists from Europe. 

MK Ze'ev asked to hold an urgent discussion in the Knesset  to act "against the trend of boycott against Israel in Europe and attempts to de-legitimize Israel." 

Political officials contacted Ben-Eliezer, who canceled the event and explained: "I was told it was a group of fascists and racists and there is nothing for them to do in the Knesset. "
