How much money is the EU sending to Israel? The answer of course is not one dime. However it does send hundreds of millions to a group of people who have sworn to destroy Israel. If that doesn’t tell you all you need to know about the EU, that’s too bad. It really should.

The EU equates the Palestinians and Israel equally (at least that’s what they say), but they never give Israel the breaks.

What demands has the EU made upon the Palestinians to give up something for peace? The answer is none. Still the EU constantly demand Israel give up land or come to terms with terrorist organizations. Israel is not my only litmus test, but it sure does lay the EU out for all to see.

The EU is reluctant to take measures against Iran. They are reluctant to take measures against terrorists. They are moving more and more people from terrorist states inside their countries to the point that they cannot think problems out clearly.

The EU is dead set against England’s and our actions in Iraq. They don’t contribute and thwart our moves when possible. Is this what we want in an ally? Do we really want to silence England’s voice on the Security Council?

I sure don’t.

“How much money is the EU sending to Israel? The answer of course is not one dime.”

As a german I can tell you - that’s wrong. The size of military help and cooperation between germany and israel is enormous.

We gave them second strike ability and they hardly payed for it.

The german army just ordered several hundreds of mine-proof transport vehicles - for what do you think ?

If you followed the debate about meassures against terror in germany you’d see that one part of germany is systematicaly peparing the other for a prolonged war.

10 years down the river germany wasn’t even able to conduct a simple mission outside it’s borders - if you see where we’ve come from the changes are enormous. Yesterday sending a field lazarett was an outrageous thing to do for our people today we are part of OEF and getting involved more and more.

But if we have to take these risks - we want to sit at the table if decisions are up to be made.

Fair enough ?
