Liberman compares European position to Holocaust

0 Comentario

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman raised eyebrows when he compared European diplomacy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the Holocaust, "I\’m not pleased with Europe\’s position that again, again in history, ignores calls to annihilate the nation of Israel", told Israel Radio on Tuesday.
Hamas, he said, missed no opportunity to clearly state its objective of annihilating the state of Israel, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, he insisted, supported that position.
"We already went through this Europe at the end of the 30s, in the 40s. They are sacrificing all their values in favor of their interests. Even then, in the 40s they knew what was going on with the concentration camps, to the Jews, and they didn\’t exactly act," Liberman said.
The EU said on Monday that was “deeply dismayed by and strongly opposes Israeli plans to expand settlements in the West Bank, including in east Jerusalem, and in particular plans to develop the E1 area,” and said all of its agreements with Israel only applied to the pre-1967 lines.
It also denounced as "unacceptable" recent inflammatory statements by Hamas leaders in Gaza "that deny Israel’s right to exist."
Yoel Hasson of Tzipi Livni\’s "Hatnua" party blasted the foreign minister, saying "Liberman\’s scandalous comparison of the Holocaust to Europe\’s diplomatic relationship with Israel today is a dangerous political step."
Liberman\’s words, he said, endangered one of Israel\’s best and most important relationships.
The Israeli public, he continued, should know that "Israel\’s friends in Europe have not lost faith in the state of Israel, but in the government of Israel."
