Prime Minister Netanyahu was confronted by an awkward diplomatic insult Wednesday when Tunahan Kuzo, a member of parliament in the Netherland’s, refused to shake his hand.

 

 

The affront came when Netanyahu met, during his state visit to the Netherlands, with Dutch members of the Foreign Affairs Committee. As he extended his arm to shake Kuzo’s hand, Netanyahu was rejected before the cameras.

Netanyahu recorded a video responding to the incident. “We saw again another clear example of who wants peace and who doesn’t want peace. I will continue to representing Israel’s position with pride everywhere in the world and I will strengthen its international standing,” he said from his plane after he departed from the Netherlands.

 

“As Menachem Begin said, those who who choose to turn up their nose, let them have crooked noses.”
