Ugly words

Here are some 'highlights' of EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton's visit to Gaza on Sunday.
"The position of the European Union is very clear: that we want the opportunity for people to be able to move around freely or to see goods not only coming into Gaza but exports coming out of Gaza,” she said in a press conference in Gaza City.


Israel should “completely reopen the crossing points of Gaza,” Ashton said. She announced that the EU will increase its support for Gaza's private sector, and said she will return in several months to see if living conditions have improved.
They can go out through Egypt all they want, but they cannot enter Israel. That's been true for ten years - not four. We're not going back to having them sending splodydopes into our cities. And thankfully, that's (Jewish) Israel's position across the board - I have not heard any Israeli call for allowing Gazans back into Israel.
At a press conference held after her meeting with Foreign Minister Avigdor Leiberman, Ashton called on Hamas to free Gilad Shalit and allow the Red Cross to visit him.
Well, which should they do first, free Shalit or let the Red Cross visit him? Or is the Red Cross visit meant as a substitute for freeing him?

By the way Baroness, did they take you to the mall? To the swimming pool? To the horseback riding? You really don't know how to enjoy a vacation, do you? Which hotel did you stay in? Where did you eat dinner?

Ashton has been bad news for Israel since Day One. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.

Perhaps she and the rest of the EU parliament would be willing to move to Sderot to act as human shields? And why did she not make her call to free Gilad Shalit from Gaza?

The chance of Israel doing what she wants is zero. Any Israeli politician who agreed to allow Hamas to export goods to through Israel and allowed Arabs passage through Israeli territory would be out if a job. It is not Israel's responsibility to provide Hamas and the Arabs with a living. They want that - they can find it through Egypt.
