The Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented on the statement by David Cameron that during his visit to Israel he was «shocked» by the scale of construction in East Jerusalem.
«David Cameron is undoubtedly a friend of Israel, but it seems that he has forgotten some facts. Only Israeli sovereignty does not allow Hamas or Islamic state to destroy religious shrines as it does in other countries. Only Israel can guarantee the residents of the Arab neighborhoods, the presence of roads, clinics and jobs. All this they can’t obtain in any other country in the middle East,» said Benjamin Netanyahu. These comments were made during a meeting with activists of the Likud party, which took place in Ofakim.
Previously, the performance of Cameron commented the mayor of Jerusalem NIR Barkat. He also talked about the fact that the standard of living in East Jerusalem are much higher than in neighbouring Arab countries.
