While the United States imports only about 22 percent of its crude oil from the Middle East, the EU imports more than 40%. The EU imports more crude oil and gas from Russia than from any other country. When Putin closed a pipeline a few days ago, Germany lost 20% of its crude oil supply from one hour to the other. This should explain why the European countries are so eager to have closest relations with rogue regimes like Iran. These regimes could strangle the EU at will. Therefore the EU will never play a positive and unbiased role in the ME and Israel should never fall into the trap posed by Europe despite the good trade relations. For oil, the Europeans would trade with the devil, and on many occasions they did just this.
