Far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir reacts to a decision by the European Union to cancel its annual Europe Day event in Tel Aviv rather than allow him to speak.

“It is a shame that the European Union, which claims to represent the values of democracy and multiculturalism, is undiplomatically shutting mouths,” he says.

“It is an honor and a privilege for me to represent the Israeli government, the heroic IDF soldiers, and the people of Israel in every forum,” says Ben Gvir. “Friends know how to voice criticism and true friends also know how to take it.”
