Netanyahu slams France for ‘insolent’ claim Israel at risk of apartheid

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday denounced French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian for saying earlier this week that Israel is at risk of “long-lasting apartheid” if a Palestinian state is not established.

Le Drian, whose remarks made him one of the first senior French officials to use the term “apartheid” in reference to Israel, was referring to Palestinians but also to violent riots by Arab Israelis that erupted in multiple cities and towns amid the recent fighting with terror groups in Gaza.

Speaking at an event in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu expressed “a strong protest against the French government and the outrageous comments of the French foreign minister on television.”
