      Edelstein: Migrants Paid the Price for MK Populism

      Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein told Israel Army Radio about his decision to deny African Migrant leaders an audience with MKs during their demonstration on Wednesday, "The migrants ended up paying a price due to populist MKs who just wanted to put on a good show. The meeting would not have ended well, and the migrants will continue to be able to attend Knesset sessions, as they have in the past. I do not  make decisions expecting to be considered enlightened, nor am I concerned if I am criticized as primitive."
