Former prime minister Ehud Olmert on Thursday blasted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for not intervening and stopping the Foreign Ministry from releasing a controversial statement slamming European members of the UN Security Council.

"I often ask myself whether Israel decided to declare war on the entire world?" Olmert said in a speech to the Farmers Federation of Israel in Ramat Gan. "Where is the voice of the prime minister to renounce these terrible words? Where is the policy that would enable these countries to stand by Israel as they did before?"

Olmert's comments came in response to a Foreign Ministry statement released Wednesday, saying France, Britain, Germany and Portugal risk losing credibility and relevance with their reflexive condemnations of construction beyond the Green Line and selective interpretation of Quartet statements.
