U.S. skips Knesset meeting on rising anti-Semitism

The United States Embassy in Tel Aviv declined to send a representative to a Knesset committee meeting Monday on rising anti-Semitism in the United States and Europe, in a hearing attended by high-level diplomats from Germany, Austria, the United Kingdom, and France.

“They were invited, [but] decided not to send [a representative],” Knesset Immigration and Diaspora Affairs Committee chairman MK Avraham Neguise (Likud) said of the US embassy.

The absence of a US representative was underlined by Zionist Union MK Nachman Shai, chairman of the the Knesset Lobby for US-Israel Relations, who later called the American decision not to participate “very disappointing” on Twitter.
