EU envoy heckled at Jerusalem conference

The European ambassador to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Anderson, is heckled at the Jerusalem Post conference.

As he condemns terrorism, a conference-goer yells “Labeling is terrorism.”

Unfazed, Faaborg-Anderson speaks on, thanking Israelis for their hospitality and reiterating the union’s support for Israel.

“The bond between the EU and Israel is unbreakable and it is indispensable and for most part our relations are thriving,” he says. “But [it’s] no secret we don’t agree on every point.”

He says talks of an EU boycott do not stand up to the test of reality. The envoy says Europe is not boycotting Israel and not boycotting settlements, and is opposed to boycott efforts.
