BUDAPEST – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu launched a blistering attack against the European Union Wednesday in the Hungarian capital of Budapest. During a closed-session meeting, Netanyahu told the premiers of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia that the EU's behavior toward Israel was 'crazy.'
