Meretz party: Netanyahu 'supporting anti-Semitism' in Soros affair

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Tel Aviv (dpa) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday came under fire from the left-liberal Meretz party, who accused him of "supporting global anti-Semitism" over his handling of the George Soros affair.

Meretz chairwoman Zahava Galon made the comments after the Israeli Foreign Ministry backtracked on criticism of Hungary over its campaign against US-Hungarian investor Soros, who is of Jewish origin.

Soros has been targeted repeatedly by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who said in a radio interview last week that Soros was behind a secret plan by the European Commission to bring millions of migrants to Europe.

On Saturday, the Israeli ambassador to Hungary, Yossi Amrani, wrote on Facebook that Orban‘s accusation "not only evokes sad memories, but also sows hatred and fear," referring to historic persecution of European Jews.

But Israel‘s Foreign Ministry on Sunday sought to qualify the comments, saying the "sole purpose" of Amrani‘s statement was to say that "Israel deplores any expression of anti-Semitism in any country."

They said that the statement was "in no way ... meant to delegitimize criticism of George Soros, who continuously undermines Israel‘s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself."

According to media reports, Soros has given money to organizations such as Breaking the Silence, which criticizes Israel‘s occupation of the Palestinian Territories and whose members are consistently denounced as traitors in Israel.
