Contrary to what you think, most Europeans believe that Israel's persecution of the Palestinians is poisoning their relation with the Arab and Islamic world. Many in Europe blame Israel for the increasing radicalisation of Muslim youth. It is maybe true that corrupt leaders like Berlusconi are pro Israel but 67% of Italians consider Israel as the main threat to world peace. Furthermore 93% Italians were d against the invasion of Iraq despite Berlusconi's alliance with Bush. I think the world is opening its eyes to the danger posed by fanatical Zionists and Evangelical Christians led by Bush.
