European Jews Call for Catherine Ashton Resignation

avatar by

The European Jewish Union has called for British politician Catherine Ashton to resign, following her comparison of the tragedy in Toulouse to the situation in Gaza.

The European Jewish Union and the European Jewish Parliament have asked British Prime Minister David Cameron to fire High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton.

The petition by the Jewish organizations also calls on Ashton to “apologize or resign following her inappropriate comments on the horrific events that took place recently in Toulouse.” Ashton had compared the Toulouse murders, in which one adult and three Jewish children were shot, and the situation in the Gaza strip. “So far, this Petition has been signed by thousands throughout Europe, and increasing daily,” the letter said according to the Israel National News.
