Israel: Paris-bound Netanyahu slates ‘hypocritical Europe’ before historic meeting

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticised his European counterparts for 'hypocrisy' after he claimed they had failed to denounce Palestinian attacks on Israel following US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Saturday. Netanyahu spoke as he boarded a plane bound for Paris and then Brussels where he will meet French President Emmanuel Macron and... Еще hold a historic meeting with European Foreign Ministers, the first of its kind for an Israeli PM in 22 years. «I ascribe great importance to Europe. I respect Europe But I am not prepared to accept a double standard from it. I hear voices from there condemning President Trump's historic statement but I have not heard condemnations of the rockets fired at Israel or the terrible incitement against it. I am not prepared to accept this hypocrisy,» said Netanyahu. On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump made a significant shift in US foreign policy, by formally recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel for the first time. The decision sparked immediate outrage and fury from the Arab world. The status of the Holy City is a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
