Israeli ambassador: Europe supports kidnapping children

June 20, 2014 8:49 A.M. (Updated: June 20, 2014 8:49 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (MA'AN) -- The Israeli ambassador to Italy on Thursday attacked the European Union for supporting the Palestinian government of national unity in light of the disappearance of three Israeli youths last week, accusing them of supporting "kidnapping."

Ambassador Naor Gilon was quoted by Israeli media sources as saying that "Europe backs Hamas' government and the kidnapping of children and Israeli civilians."

Naor Gilon said in a statement published by several Italian media that "the European Union is ignoring the conditions it placed on itself in recognizing Hamas."

"While the European Union acknowledges the Palestinian national unity government that Hamas is a part of, it gives it international legitimacy even though a terrorist organization is part of it," he was quoted by Israeli news site Ynet as saying.
