Maybe Ashton should take the board out of her eye in Ukraine before worrying about the splinter in others?
The EU is a joke - a four-star cluster f***, and they want to render unto Israel the same status?
Israel would be well-advised to tell them to take a hike.
These days, every goofball, utterly screwed up administration on Planet Earth (including Obama/Kerry) seems to feel they have the right to tell Israel what to do and how to do it.
The EU is worse than the UN because it regulates imports and exports...and can crush a country.
The EU’s problem is that its not even-handed so it has no real influence. And most Israeli Jews simply do not care about a “peace process” that is headed for nowhere.
If the EU would leave things well enough alone - the parties involved can manage the conflict. But there will never be peace.
The EU is instigating. They have some vested interest in the Holy Land after all.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Europe has a millennia long history of telling Jews where to live, or if they can live.
