Does כנסת also mean parliament in Hebrew?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/radagastthebrown

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

Why will it not accept "the parliament of Israel"?

In a previous question it was "Knesset" and "The Knesset" was marked wrong. Now this one is "The Knesset" and "Knesset" is wrong.
