Europe: More Israel-bashing at the European Parliament

In spite of the crisis in Europe, mass unemployment, mass poverty, the rise of poitical extremism, violence,  uncontrolled immigration, islamism, the Greek crisis, the shameful treatment of the Roma population, antisemitism, Eurocrats continue to focus on Israel. They would not dare to criticise Saudi Arabia or Qatar - quite the opposite.  Only Israel concentrates their wrath.   This conference took place at the European Parliament on July 1.  The Belgian media covered the event extensively and admiringly at the Israel-bashers.  Nothing was heard from the pro-Israel Euro MPs or from pro-Israel associations.
