Zahalka disinvited from President’s Residence event

Although he had initially been invited by President Reuven Rivlin together with Arab council leaders and Knesset members, MK Jamal Zahalka was asked earlier in the week not to attend a meeting at the President’s Residence on Wednesday so as not to offend the sensitivities of families whose loved ones had been murdered by terrorists.

The invitation was sent before Zahalka and two other MKs from the Joint List met with families of terrorists and were castigated by both the Knesset and the media.

Zahalka had hoped to attend a historic meeting at the President’s Residence to officially mark the beginning of significantly reducing the gap between Arab and Jewish communities, but heeded Rivlin’s request to stay away.
