    If we take Europe as an example, the EU is not questioning the legitimization of the State of Israel. But it's politics and inability to move forward to some agreements regarding the settlements, that makes the Israeli policy questionable. It is very easy then to blame the EU what anti-semites they are, but critisizing Israeli politics and is legitimate, and not equal to anti-semitism. The sympathy to Israel is minimizing with the time constantly down, the "holocaust bonus" is used up. Israel has to show now it's willingness to a peace agreement, stop the settlement constructions. Nobody is arguing that Israel needs strong security guarantees, but still, we need to move forward as well.... But that wont happen with this politicians. What this country needs are new faces with visions, corruption need to be wiped out...As long this wont happen, the Israeli people will remain tired of politics and the aged bunch of corruptive mobsters will go on doing business as usual, but for sure not for the benefit of the Israeli people.
