Israeli Ambassador Accuses EU of Supporting Kidnapping


Israeli Ambassador to Italy Naor Gilon sharply criticized the European Union Thursday for its stance on the three Israeli teens who were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists last Thursday, accusing the Europeans of supporting the abduction, according to Yediot Aharonot. Gilon argued in Italian media interviews that the European nations supported Hamas's inclusion in the recently formed unity government with the Palestinian Authority (PA), thereby supporting a terrorist organization that acts to kidnap Israeli citizens.
