Israeli Minister Facebook Rant Blames Brussels Bombing on EU Labelling of Illegal Settlement Goods

Now here’s another interesting take on the Brussels Attacks. 

There are three possible angles you could read this story from:

1. This Israeli minister is essentially saying that because the EU chose to worry about the Palestinian plight, it reaped the scurge of Islamist terror on its capital.

2. This Israeli minister is a few cards short of a full deck.

3. And finally there’s this option: by blaming the EU for accurately labeling its food products that come from from illegal settlements, is this Israeli minister somehow inferring that the Brussels bombing was a retaliation for that EU regulation?

It’s hard to know for sure, but at the very least, the Israeli minister’s off-hand comments are very revealing about the current schizophrenic political mindset in Tel Aviv…

Israeli minister blames Brussels attack on EU labelling of settlement goods

The EU’s labelling of goods from illegal Israeli settlements led to the bombing in Belgium, Brussels, today, The New Arab reported an Israeli minister saying.

Minister of Science, Technology and Space, Ofir Akunis, said Europeans lost sight of “terrorism of extremist Islam” by focusing on boycotting Israeli goods instead allowing the attacks to take place.

“Many in Europe have preferred to occupy themselves with the folly of condemning Israel, labelling products, and boycotts. In this time, underneath the nose of the continent’s citizens, thousands of extremist Islamic terror cells have grown,” Akunis wrote on Facebook.

“There were those who repressed and mocked whoever tried to give warning. There were those who underestimated. To our sorrow, the reality has struck the lives of dozens of innocent people.”
