Holland Cancels Israeli Delegation’s Tour

The Netherlands has cancelled a tour by an Israeli delegation to the country after it discovered participant list includes Jewish settlers living in the West Bank.

The Dutch Foreign Ministry decided on Sunday to cancel the tour after it found out that regional council heads from the Judea and Samaria regions — including the West Bank settlements Efrat and Kiryat Arba — were due to fly to the Netherlands next month to study public policy and local governance.

Israeli authorities were outraged by the decision.

"This is undoubtedly useless and harmless politics, and we hope that this is not the final word on the topic," the Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Israeli settlements on the occupied Palestinian territories are among key issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The international community has repeatedly criticized Israeli settlement activities on the Palestinian land.
