Well..official is certainly allowed to have his/her own opinion. Israel was born, Jews fought for every inch of their land to be returned to them and died defending it thorough many wars so other Jews could live in their own country. It is not a place for elected officials of any country to dictate to State of Israel how to run their internal affairs. Live Long and Prosper Israel!!!
