The Holocaust was such a horrifying crime and Europe felt so guilty about it for decades. In that environment Israel was always going to be treated with huge leniency by Europe. But the Holocaust is fast becoming history. The last victims and the last perpetrators will soon be dead. Europe has made huge efforts to create open secular societies and ensure that nothing like the Holocaust will ever happen again. Israel is now going to be treated like any other state, and hopefully repeated human rights abuses like these aren't going to be ignored any longer. No doubt Israel will continue taking every available foreign dignitary to Yad Veshem, but the implicit message 'be nice to Israel because of the Holocaust' won't get through like it did in the past.
