In response to the ongoing violence in Israel, the European Union’s Ambassador to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, has shown the utter incompetence of the EU to the Middle East.
“As promised in the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, it would immediately lead to Israel’s recognition by the Arab world.”
Has anyone ever believed an Arab country in regards to recognition of Israel – considering that Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatah, PLO, ISIS and other “Israel-friendly” terror groups all openly call for terrorist activities toward Israel, as well as a complete annihilation of the State.
To further the problem, the EU has recognized a Palestinian state, when no such entity exists, offering it a MEMBERSHIP in the European Union.
“The EU understands that it is essential for Israel to ensure that the future Palestinian state will not be a failed state. Therefore, all 28 EU foreign ministers have offered an unprecedented and tailor-made package of support for a peace agreement in the form of a Special Privileged Partnership. This could include, depending on Israeli aspirations, enhanced market access or even progressive market integration, security cooperation or institutionalized political dialogue. In short, it could take EU-Israel relations to a level that is next to EU membership, similar to the EU’s relations with Norway or Switzerland. The EU extended a similar offer to the Palestinians, fully aware that there is no one-size-fits-all solution and that the future partnership would be negotiated with both partners according to needs and ambitions, in order to stretch the potential for cooperation to the maximum, including trilateral European-Israeli-Palestinian cooperation.”
In essence, the European Union has made the decision for the UN, United States and Israel that “Palestine” exists. It’s good to know. Except it doesn’t. The governing body known as the Palestinian Authority is autonomous within Israel and it’s borders (Israel’s borders to be discussed in a later article). It self governs parts of Israel. As of now, there is no disastrous Two-State Solution. Israel’s security is at major risk.
The reader may ask, “Why should the US be concerned?” Excellent question. When other governing bodies make rash decisions and offer recognition to terrorist backed non-States, its gives the legitimacy to terrorists. As well, when the EU offered this “package” deal, the US has no choice but to comply. Does the US really want to start trading with a terrorist country, threatening its only ally in the Middle East? What happens with the American-Israel relationship when a fully fledged entity known as “Palestine” actually exists?
As Americans, this path should concern you. As human beings, this path should make you cry.
