Dutch Member of Parliament Tunahan Kuzu on Wednesday refused to shake Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hand during the Israeli leader’s visit to The Hague.
“We saw today who wants peace and who doesn’t,” Netanyahu said on a Youtube video posted on his Facebook page, vowing to continue presenting Israel’s position with pride.
Kuzu, an anti-Israel, Turkish born lawmaker, also addressed the issue on Facebook, blaming Israel for the war with Hamas terrorists in Gaza in the summer of 2014.
Netanyahu, Kuzu charged, “deserves no handshake, but a reference to #FreePalestine.”
