Former prime minister Ehud Olmert said on Wednesday that the European Boycott of the settlements in the West Bank was not preventable and did not arise from a hatred for Israel, Army Radio reported.

"The decision comes from the international community's lack of patience with the deadlock, the stasis, and the absence of negotiations (with the Palestinians)," Olmert said.

"Both sides are guilty for the non-existence of negotiations," he added.
