Jewish parliamentarians from around the world convened on Wednesday to discuss with Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin and Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat ways to fight anti-Israel sentiment in their countries.
The International Conference of Jewish Parliamentarians (ICJP) met for a second day in the Knesset, where they were briefed by Livnat about the expected Palestinian unilateral declaration of statehood in the UN General Assembly in September.
"They have an automatic majority in the UN," Livnat explained to lawmakers at the World Jewish Conference-organized event. "We want to get a quality minority."
"We have Canada, Italy and other quality countries. We know we won't have a majority, but we see more and more countries joining in."
