I doubt if this will be issued but if it is then it will be a historic and important step forward for Palestine, the EU and Israel. Israelis use military power to defend their weak position. Moreover they do not want peace with their neighbours unless they have a Jewish state covering all of Palestine. Now the world is beginning to say enough is enough. The EU is taking the lead. I would urge Israel to rethink their position and decide what kind of future they want.
