Brazilian President Lula declared persona non grata in Israel

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has been announced persona non grata in Israel following his remarks comparing Israeli military action in Gaza to the Holocaust.

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz demanded an apology from Lula following his accusations of “genocide” of the Palestinians by Israel, which he made last Sunday. The statements were made during a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also condemned Lula’s comments, calling them “shameful and serious.”

The Hamas movement welcomed Lula’s statements, considering them an accurate description of the situation in Gaza.
