EU: If Deal Fails We’ll Boycott Israel, But We’re Not One-Sided

According to "watchdog" Peace Now, Israel's vast, new illegal Jewish expansion includes "five [homes] in the sprawling Ariel settlement." Start the boycott!

EU Ambassador Lars Anderson Faborg has been meeting with Israeli officials and warning them of the price Israel would surely pay should the peace talks fail. Faborg told reporters that Europe was eager to expand its cooperation with Israel, but the latter would find itself more and more isolated economically should settlement construction continue and the talks with the Palestinians fail as a consequence.

The ambassador added that every time Israel announces another construction plan on the wrong side of the green line, the demand to boycott Israeli products in Europe catch more speed. The settlements, he emphasized, are a stumbling block to peace.

The ambassador was not asked and so did not state what would happen if the talks fail over something else? For instance, the right of return of Palestinians vaguely related to the original, mostly dead by now, 1948-49 refugees. Or the status of Jerusalem as the united and eternal capital of Israel and no one else. Will the Europeans then also boycott Israeli stuff?

Is there any Israeli objection to Palestinian demands which would not be followed by a European boycott?

And will the boycott include products made by Palestinians, in businesses owned by Jews – or will there be a selection system? Because if they’re thinking of a Jewish selection system, there’s at least one senior EU member that’s already developed that one into a science…

To remind you, the deal at the start of the talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians was: Israel sets free small increments of Palestinian murderers, and in return, Israel would be able to add a limited number of housing units, primarily in East Jerusalem, but also in the settlements.

How many Jewish homes in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem constitute an offense against peace, you might ask. There is no official answer to that. To the best of my knowledge, there is no number of new (or improved) Jewish homes about which our concerned friends in Europe and America, never mind the UN and the rest of the planet, would say: OK, let them have this one, after all, it’s only… five homes?

In comparison, Israel has offered a real answer to the question of what number of murderers would it consider small enough so its negotiators could sell it at home as acceptable. The answer is 26. The folks in front of the TV screens in Israel are willing to stay home and not rally (unless you call seven women and an odd looking Haredi guy in front of Bibi’s house a rally) if only as many as 26 killers are let go.

So, can we get to build 5 homes without Europe dumping its supply of Pesek Zman candy in the dumpster behind their Brussels headquarters?

That’s not happening. The newest Illegal Jewish Construction (IJC) item by AFP headlined: “Watchdog: Israel plans 261 settler homes deep in West Bank” cites said watchdog’s report that the vast, new illegal IJC expansion included “five [homes] in the sprawling Ariel settlement.”

So, if you’re transferring this into a mathematical equation (I have a daughter studying for the SATs, so I’m into it right now), the answer would be, using ANJH for Acceptable Number of Jewish Homes: ANJH < 5.

The watch dog is Peace Now, which has been doing a fantastic job documenting Jewish life in the historic Judea and Samaria. Out of an essentially antisemitic drive, these children of the Secular Ashkenazi Junta (SAJ) have amassed a wonderful archive depicting the renewal of the Jewish conquest of our homeland—God bless them.

According to the Peace Now pack of watchdog, the new plan for illegal Jews includes 256 housing units in the Nofei Prat settlement, “located deep in the occupied West Bank.”

  1. what a set up. why not isolate the rogue so called “Palestinians’?

  2. Sorry but F them. Jews stop buying European crap including their Kosher wines. I know this may hurt some Jewish business but these scumbags deserve a boycott. There is a reason that Hitler was able to do thew Holocaust in Europe.

  3. There are many US and Canadian made products that are equal or better the the Euro Crap. I am starting my own personal boycott today. I will buy Israeli and North American products only.

  4. Cody Flecker says:

    I agree with Joseph Marmor; now is the time to boycott everything that is made in Europe. Let Europe know that we Christians and Jews have money to spend and we refuse to spend in places that are anti Israel, or show bias against The State of Israel.

  5. Shir Emes says:

    If only the EU had anything to offer we could boycott them…

  6. These are the comments of the children and children of the same people who sat by so willingly while Hitler and his crew tried to destroy the entire Jewish race.When they need the help of the help of the Jewish Nation or people thats just fine with them, but when the Nation of Israel and its people need their support you now see where they now stand.Any thing they say and do about this matter should be thrown back in their faces with the comments about their just following their leaders and countries past evil ways. Friends or enemies it is some times hard to tell who is who in this world. The Jewish people should rely on themselves and trust others with extreme caution. This includes the Unites States whose current leaders will do anything to aid the muslim struggle for domination of the middle east.

  7. Abbushuki says:

    Kapos were Jews who did Nazi dirty work thinking it would save their own hides. Thus orgs such as Peace Now, JStreet, Jews for Peace and the like should only be referenced as Kapo organizations.

    Remember: NEVER AGAIN!

  8. Love it!!!!! IN YOUR FACE EUROPE!

  9. Basha Kline says:

    A disgrace to even shake hands with this aryan, him with the ****-eating grin, he would obviously condemn Israel for whatever it did, and building in an area "not allowed" is just an excuse. Jews and Israelis have paid too much of a price to listen to this extension of nazi officialdom and to even meet up with these quislings is immoral.

  10. when they boycott you, you'll run out of money. just like Iran.
