Is Israel headed for the isolation ward?

Following Friday's vote in the Security Council, there are some who fear that Israel is headed for isolation, particularly in Europe.
"Every time Israel issues another tender for construction in the settlements it distances the friendly European nations. We have a very serious problem and the fact that there is no peace process makes it harder to get Western European nations to support Israel. Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy are angry with Netanyahu and do not accept the fact that the prime minister did not extend the freeze for an additional three months," the state official said.

Sources in Jerusalem also warned of the possibility of damage to Israel and Europe's financial relations. "It is estimated that the weekend vote will have financial consequences in relation to Europe. There are countries which already boycott Israeli goods and things may deteriorate further.

"The Europeans notice the fact that Ashton's policy is equivocally anti-settlements. Settlements and construction contribute to Israel's de-legitimization in all of Europe. In the past, European countries could have been influenced, but today it's virtually impossible."
I think we ought to help the Europeans out in their boycott efforts.

Let's go to the videotape.

Here's another one. This is from 2007, so it's not quite up to date, but it's still quite impressive.

Let's go to the videotape.

Maybe they'll want to reconsider that 'boycott.'

The Stupid Jews should stop trying to please a continent that mass-murdered six million Jews a century ago!

Europe's attitude to Israel is dictated by its need for Arab oil and by anti-Semitism.

Discriminating against the revanants won't change Europe's chilly treatment of the Jewish State.

Off topic: J-Street will hold a shindig in Washington in the next few days and this list of speakers compiled by Steven Plaut should give one an idea of what its all about:

* Suhail Khan, and Islamic radical, often proclaimed incorrectly as a moderate, who has consorted with and praised the Muslim Brotherhood.

* Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, the radical pro-jihad Islamofascist anti-Christian Imam from the proposed Ground Zero Mosque.

* Maen Rashid Areikat, PLO terrorist and its "representative" in Washington, DC. Has been jailed by Israel for terrorism. Defender of anti-Semitic bigotry.

* Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, whose daughters were killed in the crossfire when Gaza terrorists opened fire, including with RPGs and missiles, at
Israeli troops. He sued Israel for returning fire at terrorists when his daughters were killed. He did not sue the Hamas.

* Imam Yahya Hendi, a chaplain at Georgetown University, is the closest thing around to a moderate Moslem. He has spoken out against terrorism. Just how that makes him a bona fide lobbyist for this radical group funded by George Soros is unclear. (A true moderate would refuse to attend!)

* Mustafa Barghouti, anti-Israel "activist," arrested by Israel several times for involvement in terrorism, leader in the Boycott Israel movement

* Amjad Atallah, legal advisor to Chief PLO Terrorist Mahmud Abbas, propagandist and apologist for the Hamas – see this, in which he falsely claims Hamas accepts the existence of Israel.

* Nadia Bilbassy Charters, "journalist" for the pro-jihad Al-Arabiya news service.

* Mona Eltahawy - Arab anti-Israel Arab blogger.

Yup, pro-Israel and pro-peace? Not if the above speakers list is any indication of the organization's orientation.
