Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
Agree with Amira. However, I do wonder just how much EU/USA understanding is behind the recent EU directives on loans etc with the settlements. It is possible that the USA is more than happy with the EU putting pressure on Israel and in fact encouraging EU to do what it cannot due to domestic political considerations. If the US truly wants a just resolution of the IP conflict, it makes sense to encourage the EU to partially sanction the settlements. Isn't growing isolation and BDS the perils that Obama warned Israelis of in his speech in Israel?
