The left is in denial. This is not a simple "administrative decision". This is a profound political statement. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Europe is saying no to a Jewish state. How to explain their rejection of Israel full annexation of East Jerusalem giving its population citizenship? The Israeli left is in denial, thinking this is an administrative decision against settlers. Not all all, this is a political decision against the concept of a Jewish state. To wit, Europe would agree to an overall Israeli annexation of all the land, leading to a one state solution. Why would they? because a one state solution would mark the end of the Jewish state. They're not talking about Palestinians. They're talking about our Jewish state, which Europe has never accepted. The argument as if humanitarian aspects here are of the matter to Europe, falls when looking at Europe "care" in other places, e.g. Algeria, Rwanda, Kosovo, Congo, Syria etc. All these show humanitarian feelings do not exist in Europe. The only possible explanation is the long term feud of Europe against Jews, and the Jewish state in its modern version. Why else prevent Abbas from signing a deal by taking more extreme positions than Palestinians themselves?
