Skip to comments.EU diplomats: 'Jewish state' is becoming too Jewish(!!)
Posted on 12/16/2011 10:48:19 AM PST by Olog-hai
EU countries have raised a red flag over Israel's treatment of its Arab minority in a complaint that touches the heart of its identity as a "Jewish state."
The deputy heads of EU embassies in Tel Aviv put forward their concerns in a 27-page-long internal report sent to the European Exernal Action Service (EEAS) earlier this month.
The contents were first revealed by Israeli daily Haaretz on Friday (16 December) morning. EUobserver has also seen the "Conclusions" and the "Recommendations" parts of the paper.
The Conclusions were endorsed by all 27 member states. The Recommendations were cut from the final draft because some EU countries objected to the content.
The controversial recommendations make 16 points.
One idea is to nominate a "lead EU country" to monitor "potentially discriminatory draft legislation" and to "agree that approval at the second reading of such legislation (in the Knesset) should trigger an EU demarche."
They also suggest "high-level EU visitors see the Israeli Arab community and its leadership when they visit." They add that EU countres should "lobby" the Israeli government to employ at least 10 percent Israeli Arabs in its civil service and to promote Arabic teaching in schools.

Yep.....and we get to say that the Vatican is too Catholic. Statements like this are just plain stupid and have other motives.
Oddly enough, a funny little country not too long ago in central Europe felt some place were too “Jewish” too.
I guess some things never change.
LOL. The entire EU is currently swirling around the toilet bowl in the process of being flushed down completely and their response is to tell Israel how they should be running their country. So what is the EU going to do when Israel tells them to go F themselves?
“So, do we get to say that Saudi Arabia is too Mohammedan? “
You're right on this - 'other motives' ...
Hmmm... the Germans are worried about the Jews having too much control. Where have we seen this before?
Actually, islam doesn’t count as a rational religion-—you just have masses of brainwashed drones who are conditioned and trained to act in unison on every aspect of life-—therefore, it’s system is perfect for the One World Government takeover, when “they” make their Kissinger move.
Rational religions—particularly Christianity and Judaism lead to intellectual development and reason-—where people actually think and have to learn history and reality...the individualism and “Right and Wrong” becomes apparent and necessary in these religions-—It is why they are targeted today to be destroyed by Marxists-—they need to be obliterated. They don’t create useful idiots.
Israel being the Jewish state, they have a right to determine their own destiny without outside interference.
The motive is to promote hatred towards Jews. The Europeans are very good at that.
Arabs have far greater freedom, are wealthier, and are treated far more humanely in Israel than they are in Arab countries. And how are Jews treated in Arabs countries? Oh, yeah: they are forbidden from living in most of them.
Wael, yeah, Israel is probably too Jewish.
But . . . all the nations in the region are murderously too Islamic.
The model for religious tolerance . . . even allowing for the moments in history when tolerance failed . . . is colonial America and later . . . and is the United States of America.
The Islamic World has yet to catch up. That world consisting of billions of adherents do nothing to stop what James Bond once in fiction combated “SMERSH.”
Islamic fundalmentalists = SMERSH
I thought the whole purpose behind the creation of Israel in 1948 was to get all the Jews in Europe to go there?.................Perhaps Europe has become too Islamic...................
Gee, I don’t see them getting too upset of Egypt’s treatment of its Christians. Oh, wait—it must be OK ‘cause they’re all Egyptian.
This is true, but when have ideologues ever acknowledged reality? (sarc)
Just some more douchebaggery from these unelected, good-for-nothing, lazy-bones politicos in the EU (shakes head).
@ Israel: please accept the humble apologies of this European for this ludicrous EU statement.
