Shaked: Israel Will Not be Ukraine


MK Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) linked on Friday between the occupation of Crimea by Moscow and the American pressure on Israel regarding the peace talks with the Palestinian Authority. 

"When I look at what is happening with Russia, Ukraine, and the annexation of Crimea, while at the same time they are pressuring us to give half of our country to the Arabs while telling us, 'Do not worry, we will guarantee your security', I come to one conclusion: Israel will not be Ukraine," she said.
