Hundreds of European parliamentarians are set to begin arriving in Israel over the next few days ahead of the European Friends of Israel’s 3-day Policy Conference in Jerusalem which starts Saturday.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be the keynote speaker at the gathering that will be attended by lawmakers from all 27 European Union countries.
“If Europe wants to be an honest broker then we need better relations between Israel and Europe,” said EFI President Michel Gourary
The European Friends of Israel is a pro-Israel lobby group founded in 2006 and funded by private donations.
