More than simply understanding, Europe will be asked to provide the International force that Israel is going to need to halt the conflict. Most of whom have a clear idea what that will mean in reality. (They need only look at Iraq or Afghanistan). Unless you want China and Russia to be the leaders? The EU should be asked to be the honest broker. Demanding that BOTH sides must cease firing, not leaving one of these eternally bitter conflicts where one side continues killing while claiming to be the victim. A real peace, yes, but based on honest opinions and reality, not PR spin. Maybe that is just wishful thinking.
