Netanyahu Rails Against European Anti-Semitism in Wake of Museum Shooting


Murder in Brussels

An attack on a Brussels Jewish Museum this week led to the wounding of one person and to the deaths of three people after a gunman opened fire. Prime Minister Netanyahu blamed it on the anti-Semitism in Europe.


“This act of murder is the result of constant incitement against Jews and their state,” Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.

“Slander and lies against the State of Israel continue to be heard on European soil even as the crimes against humanity and acts of murder being perpetrated in our region are systematically ignored,” he said.

Belgium Interior Minister Joelle Milquet believes it was an anti-Semitic attack.

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman joined with Netanyahu and added that the constant calls for boycotts against Israeli goods has contributed to the anti-Jewish fervor in Europe.

“The so-called ‘pro-Palestinian’ activities which… call to boycott ‘Jewish goods’ and aggressively act against the only democracy in the Middle East, are purely anti-Semitic and not part of a legitimate political territorial dispute”, Lieberman said in a statement.
