Europeans declare war on revenants

YNet has an accompanying picture with this story of 'Palestinians' rallying in 'east' Jerusalem. I decided to use a picture from a different 'Palestinian' rally in 'east' Jerusalem.

The European Union's envoys to the 'Palestinian Authority' have drafted a report that is essentially a declaration of war against the revenants. The report lays the groundwork for banning revenants from the European Union, for banning economic interaction with Israeli firms in 'east' Jerusalem, and for attempting to bring about the division of Jerusalem.
The recommendations include the preparation of a "blacklist" of settlers considered violent, in order to later mull the option of banning them from entering the European Union. The document also seeks to encourage more PLO activity and representation in east Jerusalem.

Moreover, the European report advises senior EU figures visiting east Jerusalem to refrain from being escorted by official Israeli representatives or security personnel.


In addition, officials are encouraged to instruct European tourism firms to refrain from supporting Israeli businesses located in east Jerusalem and to raise EU public awareness of Israeli products originating from the settlements or from east Jerusalem.

A Western diplomat told Ynet that the Europeans are well aware of the implications of the latest recommendations. He also expressed his hope that the document will encourage the EU to undertake substantive steps in order to put an end to settlement expansion, including legislation that would outlaw financial transactions that allow for settlement construction.

A paper drafted by delegation heads expresses concern over growing Israeli construction in east Jerusalem, which the European envoys say undermines the possibility of achieving the two-state solution. Without dividing Jerusalem, which shall serve as the capital of both Israel and Palestine, it would be impossible to secure durable peace, the European envoys wrote.
If God forbid Obama wins reelection in November, it's likely that this will be the direction taken by the United States as well. On the other hand, if a Republican wins in November, there may be some chance of the Europeans walking back these dangerous edicts.

What could go wrong?

Imagine if Israel were to tell Spain that it is "expansionary" in the Basque territory, or Britain in the Falkands, and Israel (and other Western countries) should take steps to prevent the financing of "expansion" in those lands? Can you imagine their outcry.

Hypocrites, the lot of them.

Israel needs to demand that the Arabs be allowed back into their homeland in Wales which is illegally occupied by the false interlopers who call themselves the Welsh. Israel needs to immediately boycott all goods an services and academic conferences from and with 'Wales'. Any so called Welshmen will be arrested immediately upon landing in Israel to be turned over to the ICC for crimes against humanity, illegal warfare against the Palestinians and illegal occupation of their land. All buildings of all kinds for any purpose whatsoever in 'Wales' are illegal and an obstacle to peace. All building must stop immediately in preparation for the evacuation of all occupiers so that the rightful owners now refugees can be returned.

I am dead serious on this.
