On at least one item the French FM is correct: the ME needs peace. In fact the entire world needs peace. I pray it will be achieved, especially in the ME and of course elsewhere. We, EU citizens, are fed up spending money and lives (UN soldiers) on foreign wars, far away in Africa, Afghanistan etc. Another war in the ME would be a major disaster, for all of us. With the grown Muslim population outside the ME, Jews in the diaspora will no longer be safe either. No more wars, no more bloodshed, how I loved that sentence when spoken on The Voice Of Peace, Israeli radio station in the 70/80/90ies.
