Netanyahu Invited to Address EU Foreign Ministers

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini announced Tuesday that she has invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Dec. 11. A senior diplomatic official said Netanyahu will tell European leaders that their obsessive focus on the settlements is "ridiculous," remind them that the Arab-Israeli conflict predated the settlements by 50 years, and say that 85% of the settlements are in settlement blocs that "everyone knows will be part of Israel." In addition, Netanyahu will point out that "we in Israel are the future, we will bring you water, technology and security against terrorists - we have blocked 30 to 40 major attacks in Europe. You ask your people whether they would rather have that, or Ramallah."
