BERLIN - Israel’s embassy in Germany on Thursday sharply criticized Berlin’s Jewish Museum for hosting an anti-Israel US academic, who urged an audience of roughly 700 people to boycott the Jewish state.
Stressing the importance of the protest, the diplomatic statement was posted as the top notice on the Israeli embassy’s electronic newsletter, stating: “We regret that the Berlin Jewish Museum decided to hold a discussion event, which posed the question about the identity of the Jewish state. Similar discussions are not conducted about any other state on the planet.”
