Israel Set To Attend Saudi-Organized Gathering - Forward.com": "Israel will attend a high-level interfaith meeting sponsored by Saudi Arabia that is set to be held at the United Nations in November.
The conference, formally organized by the president of the U.N.’s General Assembly, is a follow-up to another Saudi-sponsored interfaith meeting held in Spain over the summer. Israeli officials were not invited to attend that meeting.
An Israeli official told the Forward that Israeli officials would participate in the November 13 interfaith dialogue and is considering which senior official will come to New York for the event. President Shimon Peres and foreign minister Tzipi Livni are the most likely candidates though much will depend on the political situation in Israel, where elections have been called.
The Saudi King is set to attend, as is President Bush."
