EU’s astonishing free pass for Palestinian terrorism

The European Union is prone to living in a fantasy world. But its latest pronouncement effectively whitewashing Palestinian terrorism and simultaneously demonising Israel marks yet another, astonishing, low point

In the Tour de France, the annual multiple bicycle race, riders are classified according to their performance in the various categories of the race. The overall winner gains the coveted yellow jersey.

The last rider to finish is affectionately termed the lanterne rouge, the red lantern. The political lanterne rouge this year goes to the European Council of the European Union, while Tony Blair should be given the yellow jersey.

    And people do not understand why I refer to the EU as Evil United, which is applicable in everything they do.

      This is just the EU being the EU.

    I do Not even pretend to understand what is going on ‘over seas’.
    I always could understand Israel’s’ side., .
    They are not exactly copesetic with another Holocaust.
    A wee bit expectant and Greedy of them? They should be happy and embrace eradication. Sorry.
    I have picked my side a LONG time ago.

    it’s actually simple to explain – Anti-Semitism never really left Europe – post Holocaust guilt forced the Anti-Semitism below the surface in Europe for the half century after the Holocaust ….now that much of that generation is passing on and memories have faded, the Anti-Semitism that was below the surface has reasserted itself. Since the number of Jews in Europe has dwindled the only way to express the Anti-Semitism is to be against Israel.
    I have no objections to anyone who is anti Israel or for that matter supports BDS (if that is their personal conviction) but they tend to be hypocrites who hold Israel to a standard that no other country is held to and they proclaim their boycott of anything Israeli while continuing to avail themselves of the benefits of Israeli R & D.
