Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the "staggering examples of European hypocrisy," that were exhibited Wednesday in the EU decisions to remove Hamas from the terror blacklist and to symbolically recognize a Palestinian state.

Speaking ahead of a meeting with visiting Republican Senator Joni Ernst, Netanyahu said, "In Geneva they call for the investigation of Israel for war crimes while in Luxemburg the EU court removed Hamas from the terror list. Hamas that has committed countless war crimes and countless terror attacks."

He referenced the Holocaust, saying that, "It seems that too many in Europe, on whose soil 6 million Jews were slaughtered, have learned nothing. But we in Israel, have learned.

"We'll continue to defend our people and our state against the forces of terror and tyranny and hypocrisy," Netanyahu said.
