The EU parliament gives new life to Goldstone report accusing the state of Israel of war crimes.
In a move likely to fray EU ties with Israel, the European Parliament on Wednesday adopted a measure urging its 27-member states to monitor the Israeli and Palestinian probes into alleged “war crimes” in Gaza last winter which the UN General Assembly has demanded in response to the Goldstone report. The EP also called on Israel to immediately open border crossings with the Gaza Strip, saying the blockade was worsening the humanitarian crisis there.
The resolution, passed by a margin of 335-287, backed the findings of the Goldstone commission, which concluded that both Israel and Hamas committed war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during the three-week conflict which ended on January 18, 2009. The parliamentary move would give the EU an unprecedented role in evaluating the progress of Israel’s war crimes probe, but it was sharply criticized by Israeli officials and by European Jewish leaders.
They argued that it was counterproductive to efforts to renew Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and that the Goldstone report would effectively deny Israel the right of self-defense. The UN General Assembly recently gave Israel and the Palestinians five more months to conclude their own investigations into the war crimes allegations.
The EU will become a stumbling block for the people of Europe, in regards to the Jewish people. Lovers of Jesus and the Jewish people must keep on supporting and defending the state of Israel regardless of what the politicians might say and do.
But it is a problem, that the EU wants to make a uniform European Foreign policy. Today, the leadership in Israel is denied visits to London, because of fear of being arrested and accused of war crimes.
The way the EU is developing an anti-Israel sentiment, this kind of arrest warrants might be enlarged to the full Union. Than the fascists have succeeded where Mussolini and Hitler failed. To make the full Europe into a weapon to be used against the Jewish people.
But the Bible says that no weapons forged against Israel and Jerusalem shall succeed and prosper. Those who wage war on Israel, shall in the end game see the eyes of their soldiers root in their sockets.
This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.
This is surely going to happen, and its not going to be a nice sight.
