A conference “The Israeli Settlement in Palestine and the European Union” is organized inside the European Parliament in Brussels and will be held on February 28th 2018.

Omar Barghouti,  leader and founder of the BDS movement which calls for a total economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel has been invited. The BDS movement doesn’t work towards peace, furthermore, its leader, Mr Barghouti, repeatedly compares the state of Israel to the Nazi regime.

Serge Dahan, President of B’nai B’rith Europe, sent a letter to Mr Antonio Tajani President of the European Parliament, to protest against Mr Barghouti’s invitation, asking him to defend European Union’s fundamental values and the security of civil society by not leaving any space to hate speech.
