Oren slams Mogherini for remarks to Arab League

Deputy Minister Michael Oren has criticized foreign-policy chief Federica Mogherini of the European Union for her opening remarks on Sunday to the Arab League summit in Riyadh.

Writing on Twitter, the former ambassador to the United States asked, "Hypocrisy or anti-Semitism? FM of EU, which rejected Christianity as basis for European identity, tells Arab leaders of concern for “our common Holy City, Jerusalem.” She means common to Christians and Muslims but not Jews. No wonder Israelis see no EU role in the peace process."
