The EU's twisted thinking

By

The EU's External Relations Minister admits not every country would respond defensively when attacked (incontrast to America and Israel, I suppose). If this does not encapsulate and make clear the appeasement mindest of the Europeans, I don't know what will. The Jerusalem Post reports:

Kassam rocket fire on Sderot is another sign that the Israelis and Palestinians need to "sit down and talk and go for a long—lasting peace," European External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero—Waldner told The Jerusalem Post Tuesday.

Of course! Unjustified attacks against civilians marks a good time to talk about peace!

Responding to the oft—heard argument that any European country faced with a constant rocket barrage on one of its cities would respond with great military force, Ferrero—Waldner said that "at a certain moment everyone would understand that one has to sit down and talk and go for long lasting peace; this is the only argument that really counts." She said that if this were not done, "it would be horrible here and horrible there, and this is our European understanding. We would like to assist both of you as much as we can and be an objective partner." [....]

Ferrero—Waldner praised Abbas for his referendum idea on the so—called prisoners' document that calls for the establishment of a Palestinian state along the pre—1967 lines, with Jerusalem as its capital, and a "return of refugees" to their homes.

Of course, this is another way to destroy Israel. Apparently she finds this praiseworthy. Andthere is not one word from her critical of the Palestinain failings. 

"External Relations Minister"? Leave it to a bureacracy to come up with a title that I suppose means Foreign Minister.
