Knesset speaker banned MK delegation after National Union MK Ben Ari's application was denied based on State Department's prerogative to ban terrorists from U.S.
Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin announced Monday he is banning a delegation of MKs from attending a women's conference in Washington this month because the United States has denied entry to MK Michael Ben Ari (National Union)
MKs Zahava Gal-On (Meretz), Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) and Einat Wilf (Atzmaut) were scheduled to take part in a four-day conference on women that begins March 25 and will be hosted by the U.S. Congress.
They were due to sit on a panel with U.S. congresswomen and to launch a collaborative project between the Knesset and Congress. Gal-On, Hotovely and Wilf were also scheduled to attend a reception at the Israeli Embassy in Washington.
The U.S. refusal to grant entry to Ben Ari because of what it said are his ties to a terrorist group amounts to "an assault on the Knesset as a whole," Rivlin said Monday. "The United States' allegation that an MK is a terrorist is unacceptable."
Ben Ari is a long-time follower of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose Kach party is outlawed in Israel and is considered a terrorist organization in the United States.

Bismarckian Liberalism (he was the one who invented the welfare state) is not a religion and certainly not a religion Jews should adopt when we have our own.
Exactly. Bomber Bill Ayres is admitted to the White House, but the sheer horror of admitting an assertive Israeli Jew to the nation is too much for The One and Cankles.
Meir Kahane was one of the greatest Jews in history. How dare the Obama Nazis posthumously declare him a terrorist. Devils!
The most terrorist mob to occupy the White House is afraid of competition?
