Rivlin said to tell German president that Israel won’t intervene in Palestinian elections

President Reuven Rivlin told his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier during their talks in Berlin that Israel won’t intervene in the upcoming Palestinian parliamentary elections, the Walla news site reports.

“The Palestinians are taking a big risk with democratic elections in which a clearly non-democratic movement can rise [to power] that the world also sees as a terror organization, like Hamas, which can take over Palestinian institutions,” sources on Rivlin’s behalf are quoted saying.
