EU Israeli/Palestinian Conflict


This says more of the EU trade commissioner, Karel De Gucht’s ignorance than of his anti-Semitism. The man has yet to be confronted by someone asking the obvious question as to why these so called, “peace talks” don’t ever succeed? What’s he trying to say here, that the Israelis want peace but their fellow Jews, who strongly backed Obama in the elections (as did lefty Christians) want their brethren to fail in achieving some kind of peace?
The highly talked about Jewish Lobby is supposedly so powerful, but yet fail time and again to be effective in getting important weapons sales to their Arab enemies blocked. Interestingly enough, the ignoramus only mentions the Jewish Lobby, while it’s conservative Christians who make up Israel’s largest bulk of support. Anyways, the Tundra Tabloids has repeatedly stated here on this blog that the main reasons for there being no peace in the region, is that the Arabs do not want it to be so, the moment they drop their interest in carrying on with the fight, their war is over.
There is also one more element to the fight, that is totally out of Israel’s hands, how Muslims treat their holy texts and understand them in the present day, that more than anything else has contributed to the stalemate between the two sides. Understanding that they do not want a Jewish “entity” in the region any more than they wanted a Christian Lebanon, is crucial to understanding the conflict as a whole. 
Remember, Israel has been fighting a sustained battle against the jihad long before the modern West got involved. KGS

A situation begging to be handled properly

Karel De Gucht, is just another ignorant EU bureaucrat,
please toss him some good conundrums and dilemmas

NOTE: If you really want to have some answers on why the situation between the Arabs and Israel has never gone forward, always stop here at the Tundra Tabloids as well as at Barry Rubin’s Rubin Reports.
The president of the European Jewish Congress has demanded an apology from a senior EU politician after he suggested that the Middle East peace talks would fail because of “the Jewish lobby”. Moshe Kantor called trade commissioner Karel De Gucht’s remarks antisemitic and said they should concern “everyone who seeks a more tolerant Europe”. Mr De Gucht had told a Belgian radio station that he saw “few reasons to think that there is this time more reason for success.” He said: “Do not underestimate the Jewish lobby on Capitol Hill…on American policy, whether on Republicans or Democrats. “It is the best organised lobby there.”

  1. I for one am angry that the Israelis even CONSENTED to 'peace talks'. The results of past 'peace talks' remind me of those treaties that the US government signed with the American Indians back in the day. The Indians always got the short end of the stick.

  2. Hi.
    Karel de Gucht is know for his borderline racist comment towards the africans & leadership the next step for such people is logically the Jews.

  3. This is just the EU making a ready excuse for Palis, in case the peace talks fail( A good bet actually, as the Palis want the whole of Israel).

  4. 1389, Don't be too angry, the Israelis are presently doing the "peace process shuffle". They had everything to lose and nothing to gain to (under the present administration) by being objectionist. If the Arabs can be disingenuous about it, so to can the Israelis.

    As a matter of fact, Obama rejuvenated interest in the "peace process" IMHO, is motivated from his, not the US's or even Israel's or the Arabs', own self interests. He's a phony through and through.

    Will, thanks for that. I know that there's an under current of anti-Semitism here, but the point I was trying to make is that by shouting "anti-Semitism" without even presenting the issues I raised, they are once again treating the symptoms and not the disease.

    DP111, I believe that you're correct, ll the better to start showing know the hypocrisy and dilemmas their ignorance of the root causes for the conflict.


  5. Negotiating with jihadis ?
    I am reminded of the scene in the movie "Independence Day". A captured alien, one of those bombarding the planet, is asked "what do you want us to do ?". The answer – "die".
