Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Wednesday slammed the EU's decision to label products made in Israeli settlements, in an address to the Jerusalem Post's annual diplomatic conference.

Shaked accused the EU of singling out Israel and said the policy to label settlement products "shames the EU." Moreover, Shaked said EU labeling of this kind "indirectly gives energy to terror."

The Justice Minister opened and closed her speech with a tribute to the Israeli father and son who were killed in a terror attack in the West Bank last weekend, an attack which was overshadowed by the deadly Paris attacks which shocked the world.
