Does כנסת also mean parliament in Hebrew?
No, a parliament is either פרלמנט or בית נבחרים. The name of the Israeli parliament הכנסת comes from the great assembly - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Assembly
Oh, like the אנשי כנסת הגדולה!
I love sentences that also define new words :-P
Why will it not accept "the parliament of Israel"?
