Dayan: Europe is the Same Europe

Yesha Council Chairman Danny Dayan responded on Monday evening to the European Union meeting about the Israeli government's decision to build in Judea and Samaria.

“The sea is the same sea and Europe is the same Europe,” he said, paraphrasing late Prime Minister Yitzchak Shamir. Those who are shocked to hear about building a house in Israel rather than being shocked about the slaughtering of innocents in Syria – are indicative of themselves first and foremost.”
