Dutch lawmaker refuses to shake Netanyahu’s hand

Video shows Dutch parliamentarian Tunahan Kuzu refusing to shake Netanyahu’s hand as the prime minister works his way down a row of lawmakers in The Hague.

Kuzu, from the pro-immigrant DENK, or Think, party, points to his Palestinian flag lapel as Netanyahu goes past, and Netanyahu defers as both nod in understanding.

Kuzu, 35, was born in Istanbul. He was one of the founders of Kuzu, which is made up of migrants to Holland.

In 2014, he led a failed parliamentary effort for Holland to recognize Palestine.
