Europeans: Israel committing genocide against Palestinians

More than 40 per cent of Europeans believe that Israel carries out genocide against Palestinians, Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett said a recent report showed.

During the Sunday meeting of the Israeli government, Bennett blamed Europe for the result of the report, saying that Europe is becoming anti-Semitic and the EU leaders are not taking action to stop this.

The report said that the number of the Europeans who believe Israel is carrying out genocide against Palestinians is increasing and that incitement on social media is the main reason behind this.

According to the report, anti-Israel syllabuses have increased up to 30 per cent in American universities, while pro-Palestinian student movements have also gained momentum.

It accused the Palestinian Authority (PA) of inciting against Israel through its official television stations and education systems.

The report pointed out that the BDS movement had been very successful in Europe and other parts of the world despite Israeli efforts to tackle it.
