Netanyahu can’t believe EU is labeling settlement goods

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slams the European Union for its controversial policy to require labels on settlement goods, saying that Brussels lacked “moral clarity.”

On Tuesday, the EU’s top court ruled that products manufactured in settlements must be labelled as such.

“Europe the other day decided to act against Israel, and to put labels on products that are made here,” he tells an AIPAC delegation visiting his Jerusalem office.

“They don’t join exactly the sanctions against Iran, they join sanctions against Israel. Unbelievable!” Netanyahu adds.

By contrast, he praises the US State Department for having denounced the EU ruling earlier today.
