Paul Murphy MEP: EU must end complicity in Palestinian oppression

While the High Representative for Foreign Policy, Baroness Catherine Ashton, has been quick to criticise the flotilla as an incorrect response to the situation in Gaza, criticism of Israel has not been so forthcoming.
In the past, the elite of the European Union have been content to merely ask Israel to play nicely and then at best to turn the back and at worse, to continue their complicity in the oppression of the Palestinian peoples through their preferential trade agreements and their ongoing funding of research grants for armaments companies in Israel who supply the weaponry used to maintain the brutal oppression of Gaza and the West Bank. Their hypocrisy really knows no boundaries.
