Netanyahu Scraps Visit to Federations Meeting

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled plans to address the Jewish federations’ annual General Assembly.

“The Prime Minister hoped to go to the GA, but unfortunately he will have to be in Israel during that week,” the Jewish Federations of North America said in a statement Monday, less than to weeks before this year’s GA launches in Denver. “The Prime Minister and his staff made considerable efforts to adjust his scheduling to allow for a visit to the GA, but in the end, this turned out to be impossible.”

Sources said Netanyahu pulled out because the GA conflicted with planned commemorations of the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
