Following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi addressed the Knesset Wednesday afternoon in a speech that rejected the BDS movement and encouraged peace within the region.

"Whoever wants to boycott Israel doesn't realize he is harming his own future," Renzi said, adding "Building peace is not just physical defense. There is also a cultural challenge."
