Breaking the Silence skips Knesset panel about its activities

Representatives from Breaking the Silence were noticeably absent from the Knesset Education, Sports and Culture Committee panel, which convened on Tuesday for a discussion of the group’s activities.

“We invited Breaking Silence to the discussion and time and again there was no response,” committee chairman MK Ya’acov Margi (Shas) said in the opening remarks.

He noted that only the night before the Knesset meeting did he receive a written response from the group, which he read to the committee: “The title of the committee meeting leaves no room for doubt regarding the objectives of the discussion, and we do not intend to participate in discussions that are part of an incitement campaign against the soldiers of Breaking the Silence, and we oppose the occupation,” the Breaking the Silence statement read.
