Ramzy Baroud, Palestine Chronicle | October 15, 2008
Europe is showing willingness to take greater part in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but willingness isn’t readiness. ++ The EU must first stop treating Israel with sensitivity, while simply treating Palestine like a poor country. ++ Israel shuns EU involvement, claiming Europe is soft on terror and rampant with anti-Semitism; thus, its role has always been defined by the US and Israel. ++ Unlike the US, Europe has not generated a lack of trust with arrogance and demands. ++ This gives it a good position to play a greater role.
