Lieberman attacks EU, 'yellow star' on settlement products

Plan to tag settlement products is 'hypocritical and cynical

17 April, 17:13

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, APRIL 17 - Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman slammed intended EU action to label products from West Bank settlements as a ''hypocritical and cynical'' move, comparing it to putting a ''yellow star'' on products.

    Lieberman thus compared the EU move on the Nazi identification of Jews during the Holocaust and said instead that the murder and expulsion of Palestinians from Syria by ISIS is ''being peacefully permitted''.

    ''No European foreign minister - he told a radio station in an interview quoted by the media - has asked for an emergency meeting of EU diplomats or the UN Security Council. Nothing other than a few public statements has been done''.

    The minister also stressed the presence of the Iranian nuclear threat and the crisis in Yemen, warning the EU against choosing to focus on Israel at such a time. (ANSAmed).
