APL meeting with the Knesset in Israel

On Sunday, February 20, a delegation of APL went to Israel to attend meetings of great importance. The delegation was headed by General Secretary Mr. Kalman Szalai and International Relations Director Mr. Tamir Wertzberger.

On Monday afternoon, our delegation arrived to the Israeli Knesset and had a follow-up meeting with the leader of the Knesset Lobby against Antisemitism and BDS, MK Amichai Shikli (Yemina). The meeting was short and was mainly about introduction. MK Shikli was very impressed by the speech of Rabbi Slomo Koves, and is looking forward to a collaboration with APL. The parties agreed that APL will be the bridge between the Knesset Lobby against Antisemitism and BDS and Europe, and the discussions will continue.

Right before they left the Knesset, our delegation had a great honour to meet with the former Prime Minister of Israel and the head of Opposition, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu in person. Mr. Netanyahu welcomed our representatives in his office at the Knesset. Our representatives shortly introduced our organisation, telling Mr. Netanyahu that Action and Protection League was founded by Rabbi Slomo Koves in Hungary and has become a pan-European organisation. During the meeting, they gave Mr. Netanyahu a copy of the new Antisemitism prejudice survey of APL. Mr. Netanyahu was truly impressed by the work and activity of our organisation, and showed great interest and appreciation.
