What you have just smoked is bad for your health. Have you ever seen a map? The European Union IS in the middle-east ( where are Malta, Greece and Cyprus?), The Suez Canal, the Indian Ocean , India and Africa are strategic for the EU so it is interested to anything happens there. Israel has been begging to enter the Union or at least to have customs privileges and, in your right mind do you think the union will not put its conditions. If you were a good politician you?ll have noticed that by and large Europe is the best friend of Israel. The USA are just using the state of Israel as a bargain weapon to keep its Arab clients in line when that kind of interest A.K.A Oil will cease Americans will fast dump Israel like they have done with the Greeks on Cyprus: from the 1830 to the beginning of the cold war Greece as a Christian country was supported by the USA in every crisis with Turkey, but at the height of the cold war strategic interests shifted and the Greek colonels were abandoned in their bid to conquer Cyprus. Moreover, don?t forget that demographics are more important in a first past the post state like the USA. Think of what will happen when muslims will outpace Jews in key states, do you think that southern racist like Trent Lott will go on supporting Israel.
