Netanyahu blasts Europe as two Israelis killed in Belgium

Benjamin Netanyahu speaks before the start of the weekly cabinet meeting on May 18, 2014 in JerusalemIsrael on Sunday blamed rising anti-Semitism for a Brussels shooting attack which killed three people, including two Israelis, lashing out at Europe for “hypocrisy” in its attitude to the Jewish state. As officials confirmed the deaths of two Israelis and a French national in Saturday’s attack on the Jewish museum in the Belgian capital, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quick to hail the visiting Pope Francis for his “determined stance” against anti-Semitism. “We appreciate the pope’s determined stance against anti-Semitism, especially in light of the growing hatred of Jews that we are witness to in these days,” Netanyahu said, hours ahead of the pontiff’s arrival in Israel as part of a three-day Middle East tour. The afternoon shooting shocked Belgium and drew condemnation from top European leaders, although Brussels said it could not immediately confirm whether it was “a terrorist or anti-Semitic act”.
