The EU has stepped into the vacuum which the USA has failed to fill and is providing courageous leadership. I admire the EU saying and doing what should have been done long ago. The Palestinians have needed a sponsor. Otherwise negotiations with Israel would have been the catastrophic demise of a Palestinian nation-state. We, as Jews, should have been at the forefront in supporting peace with justice. Even Ben Gurion prodded us to treat the Arabs justly. Unfortunately zealotry blinded many Israelis to the application of the precepts of our religion to our neighbors.
