Europe gets around to it

European foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has finally gotten around to condemning the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers last Thursday night.
"Such acts can only undermine international efforts to encourage a resumption of peace negotiations. We are following developments closely and remain in constant contact with our Israeli and Palestinian counterparts," the European Union said in a statement.
The French embassy in Israel also released a statement of condemnation on Tuesday calling the act "cowardly" and "unacceptable."
The EU urged Israeli and Palestinian security services to operate in close cooperation to ensure the swift release of Gil-Ad Shaer, Eyal Yifrach and Naphtali Fraenkel.
 So glad she found the time. And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
