Israel is a democratic nation and does not need EU's stamp of approval! We don't meddle in Europe's dubious record on treating immigrants, migrants, nation minorities, and other issues that the EU keeps off the media radar. The EU supports many NGOs that call on abolishing the Jewish national character of Israel and the open immigration of illegal immigrants. How would France or Spain like it if Israel or another country spent billions to support NGOs calling for Basque secession or for the EU to allow free immigration of African migrants? Bibi should stand firm- the majority is behind him!
