What’s More Important to the EU: Terrorism or Bananas?

Brussels, the capital of Belgium, has been on alert for several days because of fear of serious and imminent Islamist terrorist attacks on various places in the city. Schools and universities, many workplaces, and the subway system for a time have been closed, and parts of the city were sealed off.

The Belgian government is now considering making changes to improve its security against terrorism. It is now aware that the area of Brussels named Molenbeck, with a large Turkish and North African population, was the place where those responsible for the Paris massacres on November 13, 2015 had planned the attacks.

    Gated community could take on a new meaning.

    Didn’t the EU – back in the Common Market days – define bananas in such a way as to exclude those from the British West Indies? I think a “real” banana had to have a certain curvature; all others were “non-bananas” for import purposes.

    When one considers that the entire EU is without a doubt ‘bananas’ it is obvious terrorism is out of the picture.
