The new EU president supports Israel, condemns Hamas 3

 Here is news worth  reporting because such understanding, and such plain speaking of the truth, is unusual among EU leaders.         

 The Czech foreign minister has taken over the presidency of the EU – not the president of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, as was expected.  Fortunately, Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg shares some vital principles with President Klaus.  

In reply to the out-going EU president, Sarkozy of France, who condemned Israel’s operation against Hamas, Schwarzenberg said: ‘Let us realize one thing. Hamas increased steeply the number of rockets fired at Israel since the cease-fire ended on December 19. That is not acceptable any more. Israel has the right to defend itself.’ 

He also blamed Hamas for the civilian death toll in Gaza, pointing out that the terrorist organization put its bases and gun warehouses in densely populated areas.

    Thank you for the link, Kenn. But that was Vaclav Klaus. See our post, ‘One European leader worthy of respect’, 7 pages back.

    Klaus was expected to take over the presidency of the EU, as it is the turn of the Czech Republic, but the Czech foreign minister, Schwarzenberg, has done so instead.

    Unfortunately Klaus, with whom we much agree, has a soft spot for Russia. For this reason, Schwarzenberg is the better man.

    And,

    “The European Union’s new figurehead believes that climate change is a dangerous myth and has compared the union to a Communist state. ”

    Hold it! The EU is “the New Roman Empire,” don’t you know. It’s the vehicle the Antichrist will use to subdue Israel just before Jesus comes back. Something’s wrong with this picture!
