By the way Israel runs a trade deficit with the EU. For the economically illiterate out there, this means Israel imports more by value than it exports. To simplify it even further for some of the posters out there, if the EU were to impose a boycott then Israel would have MORE money not less. Western Europe is the past, whilst the French may have delusions of grandeur - they ceased to be a great power in 1815 - the future is Asia and the Middle East. Let Hamas talk to the EU, see how much it helps them, just like it helped Arafat. Hamas should be talking to us and us to them. Learn how to negotiate, IDF pulls out of Jenin then don't send bombers from Jenin and THEN maybe when you say that an end to occupation is an end to violence, we'll believe you.
