To think the consideration for the EU reversing its eronous decision to boycott Hamas is the presence of Muslims in EU countries is laughable to say the least. Just because Europe has realised following George Bus and his friend Sharon is a dead end road doesnt mean they have succumbed to the alleged pressure f Muslims. It is a well known fact aht most Muslims in Europe are poor and have very little political influence on teh decisionmakers. As for Dan's assertion that Israel should not rely on Europe for support! I think he is ignorant of the fact the EU is Israel largest trading partner and without this trade Israel could not survive. Israel couldnt survive if it wasn't for the generous handouts of the US and the preferential treatment it gets from Europe. As for his claim that the US is 'impartial'! Please dont make me laugh.
