PM Netanyahu: ‘I won’t accept double standard on US Jerusalem declaration’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left on an official visit to Paris and Brussels on Saturday night, vowing not to accept “double standard” from Europe on US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“While I respect Europe, 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,” Netanyahu said.

“I am not prepared to accept this hypocrisy, and as usual at this important forum, I will present Israel’s truth without fear and with head held high,” he added.

Muslim terrorists continued rioting  for the third day on Saturday in Jerusalem, Judea-Samaria and Gaza in response to US President Donald Trump’s declaration earlier this week recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Rockets were fired from Gaza on Friday evening.   First code red alarm was heard at 6:11 pm with alerts triggered in Sha’ar HaNegev, Sdot Negev, Hof Ashkelon, Eshkol Regional Councils and Sderot.

The second alarm, triggered at 7:07 pm, sounded in the Sdot Negev and Bnei Shimon Regional Councils.

The third red code sounded in the city of Sderot and the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council.  A vehicle was damaged after a rocket launched from Gaza hit on a main street in Sderot, sending one Israeli resident into shock.

Israel police on Saturday evening found an additional rocket in the southern town of Sderot.

 

The rocket, which had been fired from Gaza on Friday night, damaged a Sderot preschool building.

The Israel Air Force (IAF) on Friday night attacked terrorist targets in Gaza, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

According to the statement, the targets were a training compound and a weapons depot, both belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization.

“The Hamas terrorist organization is solely responsible for what is happening in the Gaza Strip,” the statement stressed.

  1. Many Countries quietly lean in favor of Israel ; problem is – too many are playing both sides, not wanting to disaffect either “double standards do exist” & that’s a challenge.!
