Israeli Knesset lawmaker says he isn’t bothered by Britoon’s stance on his country

Ziad Abu-Ziad, a member of the Israeli Knesset, said he accepted Prime Minister Theresa May’s apology and had no issue with her over the issue of wheelchair access to meetings. He said he had no issues with the UK government over the issue of wheelchair access and that he believed the Britian Embassy in Tel Aviv had fully complied with the directive. He added he had no issue with the UK but was turned away from the Climate Change Conference on COP26 last weekend. He was particularly angered by a tweet by Nick Timothy, a special adviser to May, who made light of the issue and tweeted: “This is how a small country like Israel behaves when it sends its supporters to represent it.” Timothy later deleted the tweet and apologized. The Israeli minister told the Times of Israel: “It has been an extremely troubling week. I had to ask the PM to speak to the British Ambassador. We still don’t know what happened because they will not give us any details… We want them to give us the full picture because there are people that get turned away who have real medical conditions.”
