Netanyahu Demands U.K., Belgium Quit Funding Anti-Israel Groups

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a Facebook post the leaders of Belgium and the United Kingdom ought to stop providing funds to non-governmental organizations with leftist visions that seek to damage and harm Israel.

“I will continue to fight the lies and do everything to protect our soldiers,” Netanyahu said in the video post that was in Hebrew but reported in English by Algemeiner.

His post came on the heels of a meeting in Jerusalem with Charles Michel, the prime minister of Belgium, and in London with Theresa May, the prime minister of Britain.

Theresa May meets with Benjamin Netanyahu at Downing Street in London.

And it also came as May doubled down on Britain’s support of the Iran nuclear deal that Israel sees as a major security threat to its nation.

Bibi said, post-meetings, in his Facebook video:

“I asked the British prime minister today: How would you feel if I was funding with Israeli government money organizations that call British soldiers ‘war criminals?’ Or called for independence for Wales or independence for Scotland with Israeli govenrment funding?

“‘Well unfortunately,’ he continued, ‘this is what many governments do when they fund groups like Breaking the Silence, B’Tselem, Adalah, etc. So I asked that the British government cease funding these groups. I think the time has come.”

Good points.

Chances are, Britain wouldn’t stand for the treatment.

Meanwhile, May came out just this week and announced support of the nuclear deal with Iran – a pact that’s been widely panned by Israeli authorities, including Netanyahu, as dangerous to the Jewish state.

From the Independent:

“Theresa May has stood firm in her commitment to the Iranian nuclear deal despite pressure from the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for fresh sanctions on Tehran.

“In a visit to Downing Street just days after Iran test-fired a ballistic missile Mr Netanyahu said ‘responsible’ nations should follow Donald Trump’s lead to head of Iranian aggression. …

“But speaking in the Commons shortly after the two leaders met at Number 10 for their first bilateral meeting, Ms May made no mention of further sanctions against Tehran. ‘We continue to believe the Iran nuclear deal was an important step forward and important contribution to stability in the region and we continue to support it,’ she said.”
