Israel's arrogance demands more than political subservience

A single, perceived omission, according to Israel's colonial agenda, was enough to turn down requests for the EU's Middle East Peace Envoy Sven Koopmans to visit Israel. This was, apparently, payback for EU High Representative Josep Borrell's alleged lack of support for the latest colonial aggression against the Palestinians in Gaza.

Koopmans' request to Israel, two weeks ago, was rejected by the colonial state's foreign ministry, which requested a postponement. The EU envoy visited anyway, upon a mandate from all 27 EU member states to do so, but was rebuffed by Israeli officials.

It is unclear what support Israel expected from the EU over and above what it always gets, as the bloc certainly delivered on the settler-colonial security narrative. "We support the right to defence for Israel and right to security – also for the Palestinians – and we consider that security for Israel and Palestine requires a true political solution, because only a true political solution could bring peace, and to do that we need to restore a political horizon," said Borrell during the offensive.
