JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel warned the European Union on Thursday to tone down its criticism of the new Israeli government or risk forfeiting the bloc's role as broker in Mideast peace efforts.
The warning came after EU's commissioner for external relations, Benita Ferrero-Waldner, this week criticized Israel's refusal to endorse a Palestinian state. She said an upgrade in Israeli-EU relations would depend on Israel's commitment to the "two-state solution."
I hear that Clinton was shocked by what she saw on her visit last month to the West Bank. This is not surprising. The transition from Israel’s first-world hustle-bustle to the donkeys, carts and idle people beyond the separation wall is brutal. If Clinton cares about one thing, it’s human suffering.
In fact, you don’t so much drive into the Palestinian territories these days as sink into them. Everything, except the Jewish settlers’ cars on fenced settlers-only highways, slows down. The buzz of business gives way to the clunking of hammers.

Or what? Nukes reign-down on London? I swear, I cannot understand, for the life of me, the audacity that is the State of Israel. Call me whatever you want, they occupy a small strip of land, brutalize another, terrorize the entire region, which makes no one to want them around, and yet somehow they insist that others play nice. I am mad! I am sick of this world! So much bullpucky I cannot stand it!

Interesting point! I've heard that anyone that is "Jewish", gets a green light to go to Israel, and is encouraged to do so. The green-light, I mean by approved visa! A bit like every Muslim is encouraged to do the Hajj at least once?

They take it seriously because they know Israel has the means to detonate a nuke in any major european city.
Adding the fact that Israel is indeed a terrorist state and you got a recipe for disaster, or bow down.
