European diplomats meddling in Israeli internal affairs got an earful from activists in Jerusalem’s Givat Hamatos neighborhood.
Israel recently announced it will permit the construction of over 1,200 new homes in Jerusalem’s Givat Hamatos neighborhood, which is already home to a large community of Ethiopian and Russian immigrants to Israel.
In response, a group of European diplomats showed up to protest, meddling in Israel’s plans to create homes for its citizens.
Jerusalem Council Member Arieh King led a group of Israeli activists who counter-protested, sending the Europeans scurrying away.
“We came to tell the EU that Israel is not a colony – it is an independent country that does not take orders from them,” the Im Tirzu organization stated.
“The Israeli government needs to send a similar message to the EU and ensure that these hypocrites stop harming Israeli sovereignty.”
ככה יעשה למי שחפץ ביקרו של האויב.
