Internet Haganah connects the dots


Caroline Glick wrote this in the JPost, under the title, "What Europe Wants" -
Standing before the EU parliament in Brussels on May 16 2001, French EU parliamentarian Paul Marie Couteax made a stunning statement. After condemning Israel's actions to defend itself against Palestinian terrorism as the "theocratic excesses of this religious state," Couteax declared that Europe should supply the Arab world with nuclear weapons. In his words, "I have no hesitation in saying that we must consider giving the Arab side a large enough force, including a large enough nuclear force, to persuade Israel that it cannot simply do whatever it wants. That is the policy my country [France] pursued in the 1970s when it gave Iraq a nuclear force."

Couteax's statement, though over the top, follows a flow of seemingly obtuse and illogical statements and actions by the EU and its member states since the start of the Palestinian terror war almost four years ago.
Aaron at Internet Haganah connects the dots this way: "Europe wants the Arabs to nuke Israel for them."

I thought I couldn't be any more shocked or depressed, but I am aghast at his conclusion. This is not to say that I disagree.
