MK Danny Danon Blasts EU's Rejection of Modiin


Member of Knesset Danny Danon who serves as Chairman of the Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora spoke strongly Tuesday against the European Union's statement regarding the status of the city of Modi'in.
 
"It appears that anti-Israel sentiment is blowing through the European Union," he stated. The EU announced on Tuesday that they will not consider certain parst of Modiin as within Israel because of prior borders dating back to 1948.
 
"The status of the city of Modi'in is the same status of Tel Aviv. Conflicting definitions of reality as presented by the European Union indicate ignorance either or anti-Israeli values," said Danon.
