Israel, by protecting its own borders and people, is also preventing the spread of radical Islam to Europe,  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday morning at a joint press conference with the EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini, in Brussels.

Netanyahu is set to meet with the Foreign Minsters of the European Union, the first Israeli premier to do so in 22 years.

Netanyahu also called on the EU to help promote the peace process, following United States President Donald Trump's announcement last week that the US has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and plans to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, a movee that has elicited sharp condemnations from European states and large scale protests in the West Bank and across the Arab world.  

"All European states should recognize Jerusalem," Netanyahu added, "Even if there is no peace agreement with the Palestinians."
