In the EU's Fantasy of 'Shared Values' With Israel, the Palestinians Don't Exist

The PLO asks the EU: Do you stand by your representative's praise for Israel's record on 'human rights' and 'the rule of law'? By his partying with Israeli extremists? Who actually speaks for your policy on Israel and Palestine?

"We [the EU and Israel] share the same values. We believe in democracy, the rule of law and human rights. There are fundamental values that we share."

That was the peak of the recent interview in Haaretz with the EU Representative to Israel, Mr. Emanuele Giaufet.

The message delivered by the Italian-born European diplomat was simple and consistent: Europe builds a relationship with Israel regardless of the systematic Israeli violations against the Palestinian people. In other words: carte blanche for Israel.
