Belgium must fight ignorance to curb anti-Semitism, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein told Beligum's Ambassador to Israel John Cornet d'Elzius Tuesday.

The two met following Saturday's terror attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels, in which three people were killed, and d'Elzius also appeared before the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee.

"Our hearts are broken. We are all in shock from the incident," d'Elzius told Edelstein. "I send to you, as the speaker of the Israeli parliament, condolences from the Belgian people. We are determined to fight anti-Semitism."

Edelstein responded that he knows Belgium is working hard to catch the killer.

"We must fight ignorance about Israel and the Jewish people so that things like this don't happen again, and we can do that by informing people. This is an important goal for both countries," Edelstein responded.
