Abbas to Host Rosh Hashana Toast with MKs

Knesset members are used to attending new year’s toasts with their supporters around the country ahead of Rosh Hashana.

But as many as 40 ministers and MKs will be attending a very different toast on the eve of Rosh Hashana this year when they travel to Ramallah at the invitation of Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Abbas invited the Knesset’s Caucus on Ending the Israeli-Arab Conflict to his headquarters in Ramallah after a Palestinian delegation was greeted by 30 MKs and ministers and a Palestinian flag at the Knesset on July 31.

At the event at the Knesset, the MKs were invited to Ramallah by Muhammad Madani, a former Palestinian parliament member whom Abbas appointed to head a new Palestinian Committee for Interaction with Israeli Society. Madani promised that the MKs would be greeted as warmly in Ramallah as the Palestinians were received at the Knesset.
