A group of EU diplomats have identified the single greatest threat to Mideast peace.
It’s not the war in Syria.
It’s not the lawlessness in Libya.
It’s not the Islamists in Egypt.
It’s not the fact that the PA has refused to hold talks with Netanyahu in years.
It’s not the current rioting by Palestinians all over the West Bank.
It’s not the tens of thousands of rockets in Southern Lebanon.
It’s not the ongoing plots by Hezbollah to murder Jews and Israelis all over the world.
Long-time readers of this blog know exactly what the EU diplomats think that the biggest threat to Middle East peace is:
Particularly settlements in the eastern half of Jerusalem.
Once again, those nasty settlements are raising their ugly heads. Count of Palestinians murdered by settlements: Zero. Count of Israelis murdered by Palestinian terror and rocket attacks: In the thousands.
Yes, indeed. Those settlements are an absolute threat. Not the rockets raining down or threatening Israel. Not Iran’s plans of encirclement.
