The EU will offer Israel upgraded trade and diplomatic relations in more than 60 areas at a high-level meeting in Brussels on Tuesday, just weeks after European foreign ministers warned that Israeli policies in the West Bank "threaten to make a two-state solution impossible"...The EU will widen its relationship with Jerusalem on a range of areas including migration, energy and agriculture. It will remove obstacles impeding Israel's access to European government-controlled markets and enhance Israel's co-operation with nine EU agencies, including Europol and the European Space Agency...[this] despite private complaints of the inconsistency of chastising Israel with one hand while rewarding it with the other, not one minister was prepared to oppose Tuesday's agreement.


It isn't all roses:

...Israel's expansion into the West Bank, which is illegal under international law [not], has taken the unusual step of delegating representation at Tuesday's meeting to Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis, the Cypriot foreign minister. As recently as 8 June, she issued a statement..."Settlement activity is detrimental to current peace efforts, including by the Quartet [the UN, EU, US and Russia], and puts those efforts at risk,"...

Bebe, be very careful about attacking Syria before the rebels have overtaken Assad. It seems the rebels are attempting to draw you into the conflict. If Iran would deem you were taking offensive action against the existing regime and nato joined in they could unleash chemical weapons which have been distributed, through out the U.S. by their moles. Two quarts of weaponized anthrax in the right places can shut down the U.S. It will cause a crisis and our administration will put in place martial law and you will be stuck with this administration for 5 more years. No Elections!! At all costs make it your perogative to decease from attacking Syria or Iran until after the election. This is just food for thought. You are dealing with a camelian that has his right foot and his left foot in the air while rocking, and using both eyes statagizing his next move at taking you down,. THEY WILL STOP AT NOTHING!!! Don't be blind sided and do something stupid. Talk with Putin, see if their troops will remove the chemical weapons in the event the rebels prevail!! If this is not handled properly your loss will be their loss too.
