PM: Brussels Attack Result of Anti-Israel Incitement


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke this morning (Sunday) at the start of the government’s weekly meeting regarding yesterday’s deadly attack in Brussels.“The murderous act in Brussels yesterday is a result of relentless incitement against the State of Israel by different sources in the Middle East and Europe. There are elements in Europe that rush to condemn the construction of a flat in Jerusalem but do not rush to condemn – or offer only weak condemnations of – the murder of Jews here or in Europe itself and, even worse, welcome unity with a terrorist element such as Hamas, which calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. We oppose such hypocrisy, we protest against it, we will continue to always state the truth, we will continue to fight terrorism and we will continue to build up our state,” Netanyahu stated.

The PM further stated that, “Today, we will submit to the Cabinet a proposal to integrate the Ultra-Orthodox in the public workplace, in the public economy. We do this, the Economy Minister and I, for the benefit of the Ultra-Orthodox community and to integrate it into the general labor market. I think that this is the right step in the right direction and there will be other steps."
