Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 25 comments
The trick to understanding Israel is attend what they do and not what they say. Just a few recent facts will serve as an example. In the past year, the Qassams in the south and Hizbollah in the north have killed nobody at all. In this time, the IDF has killed almost 100 in the south, including civilians and children. In the north during this period, IDF cluster bombs have killed over 30, almost all civilians and children. During this same time Israel has continued to expand in Jerusalem and the west bank with more expansion planned. Israel has made numerous promises to America that illegal outposts would be withdrawn and settlement would be halted. This was an "Israeli" promise, full of trickery and never intended to be kept in any case. From Israel, do not count promises as progress. This has been the error of past administrations. Facts are available online from multiple sources. Check them for yourself.
