Minister suggests that EU judges who issued settlement label ruling are supporters of Gaza rocket launchers

Transportation Ministry Bezalel Smotrich denounces the European Union’s top court for ruling that settlement goods need to be labeled as such, suggesting that the judges in Luxembourg are supporting the Gaza terrorists who have been shooting hundreds of rockets at Israel.

“On the same day that Israel’s enemies remind of us their aspiration to destroy us, and of the results of escaping from terrorism and relinquishing control over territory, the European court is positioning itself by their side,” he says in a statement.
