    This latest lambasting of Israel as an occupier and violator of human rights in the WB is very heartening. We are hearing more and more voices coming out publically in their condemnation of Israel policy of confiscation, and annexation and expulsions, in its attempt to make a Palestinian state impossible. The US is still cowtowing but the statements of Indyk show a chink in the wall. As more criticism is heard, Israel will send out its spinmeister with their usual line. We have seen it with lieberman this week: Either you go along with us or we will paint you as the new anti-semites. But lieberman and his henchmen know their tactics are falling flat. Kol Hakavod to the new EU policy chief. May her words inspire actions.
