EU Condemns Boys’ Murders But Urges ‘Restraint of All Parties’

European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who dragged her heels interminably on issuing a condemnation when three Israeli teens were kidnapped by Arab terrorists 19 days ago in Gush Etzion, hurried to condemn their murders after their bodies were found together in a field located in Halhul, an Arab village smack in the middle of the Palestinian Authority.

The connection was inescapable – this crime was committed by Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists, with the cooperation and collaboration of PA Arab villagers.

“We learned with profound sorrow that the bodies of the three Israeli youths who were kidnapped on 12 June in the West Bank were found on 30 June near Hebron,” read the statement released by Ashton’s representative on Tuesday. “We condemn in the strongest terms their killing. We express our sincere condolences to their families and friends and share their grief. We trust the perpetrators of this barbaric act will swiftly be brought to justice.”

Nevertheless, Ashton could not stop herself from reminding Israel to exercise caution when dealing with the PA.

“We call for restraint of all parties concerned in order not to further aggravate the fragile situation on the ground,” the statement concluded.

  21. Why listen to those anti-Semitic POS? I don’t see them doing anything to Putin about Crimea, so why should they listen? Look what the Muslims are doing in their countries to Jews, and are they doing a thing to stop it? The EU are sock cuckers and should be ignored by Israel.

  22. They want Israel to show the same restraint for murdered Jews that they so easily follow. Considering their historical track record my response is not ready for Prime time.

    if the EU keeps up their restraint then all of Europe with be under sharia rule, and that will basically be the death of Europe. I guess most Europeans don’t get that yet. probably won’t till it is too late.
