(Israelnationalnews.com) MK Danny Danon (Likud) protests the decision to have Arab MK Mohammed Barakeh join a Knesset Holocaust delegation to Europe, while Knesset Speaker Ruby Rivlin, also of the Likud, praises Barakeh for accepting his invitation and chastises Danon.

The delegation will take part in Holocaust commemorations in Auschwitz on Jan. 27, which was designated by the United Nations as International Holocaust Day in 1995.

Danon asked Knesset House Committee Chairman MK Yariv Levine to call a committee session on the inclusion of Barakeh in the Holocaust delegation.
