A peace conference in Ireland that was to bring together high-level Israeli and Palestinian lawmakers was postponed. The conference, set to open Monday outside Dublin, was put on hold after the Palestinian delegation refused to show up as a protest against an Israeli decision not to allow one of the Palestinians to attend. Israel’s Shin Bet security service said the delegate posed a security threat.
