Naveh to Present Bill Banning Meetings with Palestinian Terror Organizations

So now, we have come full circle.

On Sunday, Likud MK Danny Naveh will present a bill to the Knesset that will amend the order for the prevention of terror.

According to Naveh's proposal, Israeli citizens or residents would be liable to criminal prosecution if they meet with members of an organization defined as a terror organization.

This would reinstate the version of the law prior to the signing of the Oslo Accord in 1993. The law had been amended in 1993 to decriminalize the actions of Shimon Peres, Yossi Beilin, Uri Savir, Ron Pundak and others in meeting with the PLO before the 'declaration of principles' was signed on the White House lawn in September 1993.

In addition, Naveh proposes to amend the law on political immunity for Knesset members so that it does not apply to meetings with members of terror organizations that the State did not approve in advance.

"Following the rise of Hamas to power at the Palestinian Authority, the law that had been cancelled must be reinstated. The last meeting in Jerusalem allows a situation whereby a villain is at the law's service," Naveh said.

The reinstatement of the cancelled law is long overdue.
