Gal-on says Netanyahu should stop settlement construction before demanding boycott removal

June 4, 2015 15:05

Meretz chairwoman Zehava Gal-On responded to comments made by Orange CEO Stephane Richard expressing his wish to end ties with Israel over its policies in the Palestinian territories Thursday.

Gal-on said in a statement that “instead of demanding that the French government take an official stand against a private company, Netanyahu should demand from himself, as prime minister, to take steps to remove the boycott threat, first and foremost stop building in the territories.”

“We oppose boycotts of Israel, but the person who is serving the boycott is Netanyahu, whose destructive and irresponsible policies have brought Israel to the verge of isolation and delegitimize the country in the name of narrow interests,” she added.
