“…MEPs like him can and do make every effort to defend Israel against attack and make its case in a largely hostile environment (“We can speak up for common sense in European institutions”), but he was pessimistic about any significant improvements within the EU in the foreseeable future (which is why his party is actively campaigning for Britain to leave the EU).
Given that reality – both the entrenched anti-Israel bias and also the inherent weakness of the EU as an organization – Israel needs to radically alter the way it makes its case in Europe, he insisted. Rather than focusing primarily on top-down diplomacy, engaging with legislators and other senior officials, Israel should direct far more of its resources into making its case in the media and reaching out to the grassroots European public, a significant portion of whom would be receptive to its message if only they had access to it.
European society shares “many of the same threats” faced by Israel, particularly from the rise of radical Islam, he noted.”
The public, here and abroad, know what Islam is all about, the worldwide daily litany of horror scripted by the Religion of Peace itself is the best study guide possible.
Our political and chattering classes are behind the curve and continue to serve up the slop of multiculturalism hoping as ever you will ignore your own senses and accept their swill.
