    LOL .. The world would have been a much better place IF the Europeans and middle eastern people just minded their own business. Now Europe is acting like white knights after having been the root of most of the problems plaguing the world now. Europe will feel the burden of what it started.. The Belgian, French and English are on par with Hitler when it comes to destroying local cultures but no one talks about it because USA helped them win WW2. Karma will have the last laugh if you know what I mean. It already started with Germany. We have already started witnessing the Islamisation of Europe. EU has to climb down from the high horse first and come to terms with reality. Keep at it. I'm gonna need some popcorn.

    Tell me, Why is Palestine a legitimate country? Give me the logical set of facts that lead Europe to support it. I will show you just how hypocritical European thinking is.

    Logical facts ? Either the Palestinians become Israeli citizens in a greater Israel ( seems that neither Israel nor Palestinians are ready for this) , either they are entitled to get their own state as they don't belong to Jordan any more. I can't see a third solution. Simple logics.
    Unless the third solution is statu quo for ever ... meaning more violence, more desperation.


    Looking at Israeli reaction, it certainly hurts some economic interests in Israel. These settlements are a heavy load for the Israeli budget. They want to get some profit back from their existence. And the labelling thing is not good for the business.

    You completely missed the point of my post. BTW the only thing that never changes in history is violence. Can you tell me a time period where there was nothing but peace? :nono:

    then you dont understand the Problem ..........

    it is not about economic interests , Human rights or Morality ................

    this is a religious War .

    Al-Aqsa is 3rd Holy site of Muslims and they want capture & control it ........


    American presence in Arabian peninsula (near mecca - madina ) was one of the main reason for 9/11 attacks .

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motives_for_the_September_11_attacks

    during The Siege of Mecca they invited french commandos because arabs & pakistani could not do the job ............and converted them before they entered mecca .


    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Mosque_seizure


    they just dont want any non-muslim nearby Al-Aqsa .............and this is why they are fighting .

    and this is why Britishers gave that land to Jews because Israel & Jerusalem is also very important for Jews (& Christians too ) .

    now whatever UN or Europeans are saying about Israel is irrelevant ........................It is not just an ordinary land ......they will keep fighting for it ............


    even if You are ready to Give shelter to Palestinian in any other country they will fight for Al-Aqsa ..........and Jews will fight for Israel .

    Okay, you tell me why Israel is a legitimate country and Palestine can' t be ? That would help the discussion.

    I got your point ! Well, in the long run, violence always prevails. Masada, Saladin, Templars, long history of violence indeed !
    But is it too much to ask for a little peacetime in our lifetime ?

    I am not so sure about the part with French GIGN special forces converting to islam :0

    And yes, I got your point. Jihadists vs fanatic Jews who would like to rebuild their Temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa. Hopefully some new Teutonic knights order will take care of this mess ;)

    Anyone who has any knowledge in History will know peace is not just too much. Its outright impossible. As long as Abrahamic thought process of "spreading their faith" exists. For the most part, the two most followed religions have been going at each other and fighting and converting others in the world to establish their dominance.

    I didn't say anything about Israel. Please read my posts again. I was only commenting on Europe's support for Palestine. For which I asked you a question. Please answer. then you can ask me yours. That's how a discussion works :)

    Europe supports Palestinian rights to a nation state for the exact same reasons that the whole international community including India does :

    1947 United Nation Plan for Palestine
    1967 UNSC Resolution 242 asking for withdrawal of Israeli forces of occupied territories during the 1967 conflict
    1973 UNSC Resolution 338 asking for that "negotiations start between the parties concerned under appropriate auspices aimed at establishing a just and durable peace in the Middle East"
    2016 UNSC Resolution 2334 "reiterating its vision of a region where two democratic States, Israel and Palestine, live side by side in peace within secure and recognized borders" !

    It is called international law. Something Europeans take seriously !

    these Laws (& even UNSC ) are created by Westerners ............and they follow it according to their convenience (there are thousands of example ) .


    but why Israel will follow these laws ??

    what you can do ?
    sanctions ?(that will be ineffective )
    protest ? (that will be ineffective )
    war ? (you can not fight with Israel who has 200+ nukes , a good Army & advanced technology )
    terrorism ?? (Hamas & Hezbollah are already doing that with no significant effect ) .

    on 20th jan. trump will become American president and they will again get American support .


    that means all these UN resolutions are useless . :)

    Wait a second. You really classify Russia, China as Westerners ? And why non-western countries such as Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Vietnam vote much more controversial resolutions like the latest UNESCO resolution on Jerusalem ? India and France passed on that one .
    http://www.timesofisrael.com/full-text-of-new-unesco-resolution-on-occupied-palestine/

    I ' ll reply later regarding what Europe can achieve without Trump's nodding.

    Another reason European Union cares for this mess : we are the main taxpayers for the Palestinian Authority . That sucks to be the only geopolitical bloc that still stands for democracy and human rights !

    When compared to the Arabs ,Indians and Israels are a trillion time more smart and intelligent.Most of the Arab countries may have had access to more money than India and Israel but these clowns just throw their wealth into the dustbin because they are simply out-rightly FOOLISH.(All Arabs except maybe UAE at least of late or dum and silly).A source for their foolishness is their jealous nature ,while they dont want countries like Israel and India to progress they also dont want their "Own" people to be knowledgeable. This is how they keep complete control of their people.Most arabs as such dont value human life and now they want to preach to the rest of the world.Arabs are the greatest terror on earth.Only Israel can keep them in their place.

    i'm Talking about permanent members who have Veto power .

    European Russia contains about 77% of the country's population ..........China is the only exception .
    no permanent member from Africa , south America , middle east , south Asia , & south east Asia .................that means majority of population has no permanent representative in UNSC .:)



    waiting for Your reply about European actions without trump nodding ........(sanctions & protest will be ineffective and you can not fight wars with Israel ) .


    that is Your choice .........................just like accepting Muslim refugees (?) is your Choice .

    no You dont care about democracy or human rights , that is just propaganda ............I can give You thousands of examples .

    Aaah I was about to say yet it but you beat me to it, the whole narrative for support for Palestine begins only in 1947 with a botched escape plan cooked up by Britain and France. It's something they themselves made up while running away from the Middle East. And they expect the whole world follow it just because they call it 'international law'.

    Israeli diplomat caught on camera plotting to 'take down' UK MPs
    Shai Masot is recorded discussing how to discredit MPs in comments described by Israeli embassy as ‘unacceptable’





    Israeli official discusses how to discredit UK MPs in undercover footage
    Ian Cobain and Ewen MacAskill

    Saturday 7 January 2017 22.50 GMT Last modified on Sunday 8 January 2017 00.33 GMT



    An Israeli embassy official has been caught on camera in an undercover sting plotting to “take down” MPs regarded as hostile, including foreign office minister Sir Alan Duncan, an outspoken supporter of a Palestinian state.

    In an extraordinary breach of diplomatic protocol, Shai Masot, who describes himself as an officer in the Israel Defence Forces and is serving as a senior political officer at the London embassy, was recorded by an undercover reporter from al-Jazeera’s investigative unit speaking about a number of British MPs.

    The Israeli ambassador, Mark Regev, apologised to Duncan on Friday. An Israeli spokesman said Regev made clear that “the embassy considered the remarks completely unacceptable”.

    The Israeli embassy said Masot “will be ending his term of employment with the embassy shortly”. Masot declined to comment or to elaborate on what he meant when he said he wanted to “take down” a number of MPs.

    Masot had been speaking to Maria Strizzolo, a civil servant who was formerly an aide to another Conservative minister. Also present was a man they knew as Robin, whom they believed to be working for Labour Friends of Israel, a pressure group. In fact, Robin was an undercover reporter.

    Strizzolo, discussing with Masot how to discredit MPs, said: “Well, you know, if you look hard enough, I’m sure that there is something that they’re trying to hide.” Later she added: “A little scandal, maybe.”

    During the conversation, in October, Strizzolo boasted that she had helped to secure a promotion for her boss, the Conservative MP Robert Halfon. She had been his chief of staff when he was deputy chair of the Conservative party. Last year Halfon was appointed as an education minister and Strizzolo was appointed as a senior manager at the Skills Funding Agency. She continues to work part-time for Halfon.

    In the footage, Masot agreed that Strizzolo had assisted Halfon and then asked whether she could also achieve the opposite effect. “Can I give you some MPs that I would suggest you would take down?” he asked. He went on to say that she knew which MPs he was referring to.

    She asked him to remind her. “The deputy foreign minister,” he said. Strizzolo said: “You still want to go for it?” Masot’s reply is ambiguous but he said Duncan was still causing problems. Strizzolo asked: “I thought we had, you know, neutralised him just a little bit, no?” Masot answered: “No.”

    Masot did not elaborate on what he meant by “take down”, but it is normally used as meaning to engineer a downfall, possibly through discrediting them in some way.

    The conversation then turned to the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson. Strizzolo said he was solid on Israel. Masot agreed, adding that Johnson just did not care. “You know he is an idiot …” Masot said.

    Strizzolo returned to the subject of Duncan later in the conversation, suggesting he had had a run-in with Halfon in the past and that Halfon had reported Duncan to the whips. So never say never, she added. Masot replied: “Never say never, yeah, but …” Strizzolo said: “A little scandal, maybe.”

    Other prominent Conservatives named during the conversation include Crispin Blunt, chair of the Commons foreign affairs select committee, who is also a vocal supporter of the Palestinians.

    Blunt said: “Whilst this apparent activity of a diplomat of a foreign state in the politics of the United Kingdom is formally outrageous and deserving of investigation, the real questions should be for the state of Israel itself. Israel’s future peace and security is not being served by ignoring the substantial peace lobby in both Israel and the world wide Jewish community and working to undermine those foreign politicians who share that perspective”

    In another conversation, Masot agreed that Blunt was among MPs that were “strongly pro-Arab rather than pro-Israel”. Strizzolo referred to him being on a “hitlist”.

    UK ministers are understood to regard such plot talks as a matter of serious concern, crossing the line beyond normal diplomatic activity. Duncan declined to comment.

    Although the Israeli embassy insists Masot was a junior embassy official and not a diplomat, his business card describes him as “a senior political officer” and his LinkedIn page lists him as having worked for the embassy since November 2014. He describes his work as being the chief point of contact between the embassy and MPs and liaising with ministers and officials at the Foreign Office.

    He also describes himself as having been a major in the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) between 2004 and 2011 – serving part of that time on a patrol boat off Gaza – and still employed by the IDF as deputy head of the international organisations sector.

    The disclosures comes at a sensitive moment, just over a week after Theresa May put herself at odds with the Obama administration by expressing strong support for Israel in a row over the expansion of illegal settlements in the West Bank.

    The sting operation, which began in June and ran through to November last year, recorded conversations on a number of occasions that include a wide range of pro-Israeli activists as well as British politicians and Israeli embassy staff.

    The recordings form the basis of four half-hour documentaries that al-Jazeera is to broadcast from 15 January.

    Strizzolo sought to play down what had been discussed. Asked a series of questions by the Guardian, she issued a statement that said: “The implications the Guardian is seeking to draw from a few out-of-context snippets of a conversation, obtained by subterfuge, over a social dinner are absurd.

    “The context of the conversation was light, tongue-in-cheek and gossipy. Any suggestion that I, as a civil servant working in education, could ever exert the type of influence you are suggesting is risible. Shai Masot is someone I know purely socially and as a friend. He is not someone with whom I have ever worked or had any political dealings beyond chatting about politics, as millions of people do, in a social context.”

    A Foreign Office spokesman said: “The Israeli ambassador has apologised and is clear these comments do not reflect the views of the embassy or government of Israel. The UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed.”

    Well let me tell you something : the notion of a "spiritual state" is not acceptable in international relations or this will lead to fantastically devastating wars :

    . Russians will claim Kiev as capital of the old kingdom of Rus
    . Swedes will claim Kiev too ! as Rurik was Scandinavian .
    . Serbs will annex Kosovo, the spiritual heart of their old kingdom
    . India will claim the island of Java since it was part of the Chola empire
    . Greeks will claim Istanbul as capital of the Eastern Roman Empire
    . Morocco will claim Southern Spain as their lost caliphate

    I am sure you can add many items to that list.

    And last thing : before Herzl there was no such thing as sionism. Jews just moved from place to place if persecuted.

    Now all this might be good in terms of Rafale sales :confused1:
