  • Israel Blasts Europe’s “Colonialist” Peace Initiative – Raphael Ahren
    Europe’s approach to Israel appears to be a resurrection of its past colonialism, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon told theTimes of Israel on Tuesday. “When I look at the sequence of the EU implementing labeling [for settlement products] and now the endorsement of an international conference, I feel that those are the ghosts of a colonial European past coming back to life….They have no credibility whatsoever if they deal with this [Israeli-Palestinian] conflict without dealing with the major issues that are far more important to Europe and the world, starting with the Syrian civil war, and challenges that Europe itself is facing, such as Brexit, immigration and Islamic terror.”
    “Whenever you are a European leader unpopular at home, and whenever you face insurmountable challenges, then there’s nothing like organizing a conference on Israel to create a false agenda that will attract attention elsewhere….If the EU really wants to promote the peace process it should invest all its energies to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiation table.” That is the only way to achieve progress, as evidenced by Israel’s peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, he said.
