Edelstein says he’s a ‘proud settler,’ facing protest of UK parliament speech

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein remained defiant in the face of pro-Palestinian elements’ protests on Monday, ahead of his expected speech in the UK House of Commons next week.

"I am proud to represent the Knesset and the State of Israel, also as a settler of Judea and Samaria," Edelstein stated.

The Knesset Speaker moved late last year to Herzliya, which is not in the West Bank, to live with Irina Nevzlin, chairwoman of the Diaspora museum Bet Hatfutsot, to whom he recently became engaged. However, he maintains his previous home in Neve Daniel in Gush Etzion, where he spends some weekends.
