solanaIt seems that the top diplomat of the European Union, Javier Solana, insists on leaving an offensive vestige on his obsessive courtship toward a two-state solution in the Land of Israel before his retirement. As you are probably aware, Solana has made headlines this week when he gave a speech in London in which he said that if an agreement between Israel and the Arab Palestinians did not come to fruition, that the United Nations should unilaterally enforce the two-state “solution” to the conflict including borders, refugees, and Jerusalem.
It takes a lot of chutzpah to make such an absurd statement to the world about a sovereign country such as Israel. I should retort to Solana who is a Spaniard, that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Meaning, Israel could also ask that the UN Security Council recognize the independent state of Basque in Spain, since for many years ETA (similarly to the PLO) has used terrorism and violence in a political war against the government in Madrid. But it is not proper to meddle in other countries’ internal affairs and Solana should know better.
It is obvious to this writer that Solana’s behavior throughout the years as Chief of the European Union and the hypocrisy that he has shown and continues to show vis-à-vis Israel is not suspected of being pro-Israeli. As a diplomat of this stature, Solana made the most stupid and credulous statements that anyone could imagine; for example, he insisted in an interview with the then Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, that it was “not impossible” for Hamas to change and “recognize the existence of Israel,” and that Hamas wants to “liberate the Palestinians, not to destroy Israel.” According to his words, he appears to be oblivious to the culture of terror that represents Hamas. Hamas refers to any town in Israel as an “illegal settlement.” Its declared aim is to destroy Israel. Hamas has proudly endorsed, initiated and sent numerous suicide murderers into Israeli buses, supermarkets, shopping malls, weddings and other crowded places. The Hamas media, and especially its independent TV station, carry daily children programs (including programs for kindergarten age) depicting the Jews (and not only the Israelis) as pigs, dogs, scum of the earth and creatures that must be killed. I could go on and on, but it seems that all of these “deeds” are inconsequential to Solana.
Solana also carelessly declared that the construction of the security fence was a bad idea for Israel when this so-called “wall” has prevented over 95% of suicide bombers since its erection in 2002. This should teach you that Solana does not have any notion of what Jihad or Hamas stands for. In fact, he seems to also ignore Hamas’ charter stating that “so-called peace solutions and international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement.
I would like to say to Solana without any hesitation “Solana, your contributions to Israel are contrary to what you would do in your own country; your diplomatic hypocrisy vis-à-vis Israel is so apparent that your departure from the scene is indeed a cause for celebration.” Solana’s last statement before his retirement about the UN enforcing a two-state solution down the throat of Israel, in view of his past suspicious Israeli political agenda, has already been dismissed as dangerous by those in Government whose heads are in the right place for the time being.
