EU volunteers to monitor ships heading for Gaza

The European Union has volunteered to 'monitor' ships heading for Gaza.
French Foreign Minister, Bernard Kouchner, said Sunday night that the EU is prepared to monitor the ships heading for Gaza to ensure that they bring only humanitarian supplies and not weapons.

In his remarks he said, "We can implement strict checks on shipping cargo, and we would be happy to do so."
Fortunately, there is no need for Israel to answer this particular offer (the last time the Europeans offered to monitor something in this part of the World, they fled to Israel when Hamas took over Gaza). Israel Radio reported on Monday night that Hamas rejected the offer outright, saying that boats could be inspected at their port of departure and then allowed to sail straight to Gaza. Good luck with that.

If the EU is going to do this, there's no need for a new agreement. They can just extend 1701 to also cover Gaza, place their human shields at key places, and extend their collaborative effort to demolish Israel. I've thought for many years that the EU and the FSU are following the Jews who escaped their cleansing system and trying to finish them off in their new home. Israel's success in the science, technology, and cultural creativity arenas, while the EU and FSU languish, have shown how ridiculous these regions have been in getting rid of their Jewish communities.

I would recommend an airing of advice, pressure, etc. that came from the US, NATO, EU, Russia, etc. in the days before the IDF boarded that one boat with paintball guns. Given that it has worked fine on all the other aid boats, I would imagine that these entities guaranteed or somehow forced Israel to accept that the IHH people would not be violent. Really, they've just made the case that Israel cannot trust others not to arm Hamas, as they've done with Hezbullah in Lebanon. Each action of these organizations comes out to be worse than the worst case scenario that gets laughed off in advance in the press and hidden from the press's coverage later (see: Lebanon's pathway since 2006).

Let's review...

The Europeans did a GREAT job in Lebanon

Do we really need to say more?

Israel cannot trust Europe to ensure its security. Israel must check for itself any cargo bound on ships for Gaza does not have prohibited contraband aboard. And if Europe was enforcing its own blockade, it would never delegate the duty of ensuring its security to a third party. Why in the world then should it expect Israel to turn it over to them?

Good luck with getting them to persuade Israel to trust them with it - past experience has shown Israel European unreliability in the matter of undertakings made to Israel and then abrogated when it was no longer convenient for Europe to keep them.

What could go wrong indeed

Hey, EU were good enough to have been placed on the 'U.S. formulated,' U.S. led 'quartet for peace.' It is no wonder they volunteer to monitor ships heading for Gaza!*#?@! (sarc)

Who would have put them on the quartet if they could not be trusted? (sarc)

Yes indeed, all roads paved to perfection to take us to this place today....

Thanks for yet another excellent post, but, please,
every time Monsieur Kouchner makes a statement on the EU controlling transports to Gaza link to this VERY revealing video that exists on one of your older posts:

Kouchner go home! (UPDATED)

What a buffoon that man is!
