BRUSSELS, April 24 (UPI) -- Closer relations between Israel and the European Union depend on restarting the peace process with the Palestinians, the European Commission said Thursday.

"Too much remains unclear at this current point in time. And we expect indeed a clear commitment from the new government to pursue the negotiations with the Palestinians," EU commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner told reporters in Brussels.

"We expect a stop of all activities undermining our objective of a two-state solution," she added, citing the expansion of Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories "which is continuing on a daily basis."


This is a direct consequence of the US change in its policy concerning a peace solution for Israel and Palestine.

Emanuel said, "In the next four years, there will be a peace agreement with the Palestinians on the basis of two states for two peoples, and it does not matter to us who is the prime minister."

Katz was hinting that Emanuel should use his influence to protect Israeli interests, which, he believes, are best served by preventing the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.


In contrast to what Israel has been falsely pretending, it doesn't want a two-state solution. So far, the US has only used rhetoric and not been actively seeking to implement a two-state solution. We all know tha the only country that could accomplish something, is the US.

Their recent change is to me very positive but also very surprising. It was about time, and I am very happy to see the US trying to regain the image they once had in this world. As a direct consequence of this shift of policy, the EU is also able to act tougher.
