    ....just to spite Israel. No wonder Zapatero is the revolving EU President or representative at the moment. How does imposing import duty on goods made by Palestinians help the Pals ? This is the kind of logic that will eventually sink Europe , unless they wake up before it's too late. In my logic, if I wanted to help the Pals, not only I would not impose import duties but I might even offer export bonuses ! What Europe is doing is like the vindictive divorced mother or father pushing their children against the other spouse: it relieves one vindictive partner to spite the other , at the expense of their common children. I wonder, what is the import duty these days on Iranian carpets entering Europe ?
