Israel MK called ‘war-monger’ and ‘devil’ at EU Parliament

Chairman of Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee at the Israeli Knesset Avi Dichter was described on Monday as a “warmonger” and “war criminal” at the EU Parliament, international and Israeli news agencies reported.

Dichter was there, Israeli media said, to speak about the two Israeli Jewish settlers who were killed in the occupied West Bank last week. However, he encountered a “severe wave of criticism”, Israeli media said.

Portuguese MEP Ana Gomes said that the president had been “honoured” to invite Dichter to address the EU Parliament, but she was “disgusted”.

“As head of the Shin Bet [Israel Security Agency], he masterminded the policy of targeted killings, in which many died in extrajudicial killings. He also initiated the racist nation-state bill, which I think makes Palestinian citizens of Arab origin second class citizens,” Gomes said.
