Let her try:

Member of the European Parliament for Belgium V?©ronique De Keyser stated in an address that she would like to ‚Äústrangle‚Äù Israel’s ambassador if he discussed Israel‚Äôs security with her.

Addressing an organization called the European Left Group last Wednesday, De Keyser opined that the European Parliament was showing ‚Äúpassivity‚Äù on the issue of “Palestinian prisoners” (a reference to convicted Arab terrorists from Judea, Samaria and Gaza being held in Israeli jails), and complimented the Palestinian Authority Arabs for their ‚Äúmoderation and maturity.”

[sound of me spitting out my coffee all over the monitor]

“I wonder how they are able to limit violence in the territories given the background,” she said. “If the Israeli ambassador comes in the future to speak of Israel’s security, I feel like I want to strangle him.”

Yep. Spoken like a true pacifist.

The event, held at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, was part of a campaign for the release of Marwan Barghouti, a Fatah terror leader serving a life sentence in Israel for his role in several murderous attacks.

French MEP Francis Wurtz, who heads the European United Left, announced that the appeal for the EU to recognize the “Palestinian national unity government” had already been signed by some sixty members of the European parliament.

MEP De Keyser called on the German EU presidency ‚Äúto differentiate between its positions on the Holocaust against the Jews and the current policy of the State of Israel.‚Äù Apparently trying to compare Israel with Nazi Germany while showing her supposed evenhandedness with regard to neck-wringing, she also said “one must wring the neck of the European and German culpability [sic] on the Shoah.”

Sounds like she has a huge preoccupation with necks. I’m guessing that if she focused more on teeth, she probably wouldn’t look like Alfred E. Newman’s long lost sister.
