At least now since Brexit, the EU is losing it’s power.
When a ship full of weapons illegally tries to enter a country’s territorial water while claiming that it’s humanitarian aid for people who have been shooting rockets at the country they’re trying to fight with, they’ll probably get stopped by the navy. The navy takes over the ship and then sends them back to where they came eventually. But when the people use the weapons against the soldiers who show restraint and even kidnap soldiers and try to kill them and throw injured soldiers to the bottom deck, they should probably expect to be shot.
However, since it’s Israel, the world and Turkey in this case don’t like it when Israel does the right thing. So they force Israel to pay 21 million Dollars to the terrorists families, the people who put up a stupid fight, including a part where they stabbed a soldier and beat him almost to death until he managed somehow to escape. All of this in front of a Knesset member on board, who should’ve been kicked out long ago, (Hanin Zoabi) who still rants about how Israel is bad and all that.
Now, why would Israel pay these people? Because they want to renew ties with Turkey, who seem to be offended. A country that shoots down Russian jets isn’t a good country, so they find dirty ways to get their way as opposed to unfortunately, not too many countries when it comes to Israel. Turkey benefits Israel in many ways, so they’re basically going to pull the plug if they don’t get what they want.
The EU does the same with the illegal settlements that they build in Area C and all the one sided peace initiatives.
The US did the same thing with Jonathan Pollard.
Just think about it for a second.
All these relations with other countries have their big fake points as far as I and many other people in Israel are concerned. This attitude might shock you, but it’s not new. (Those who don’t support their governments actions, that’s really nice, but that doesn’t practically do anything. You can’t really do anything).
Israel was put into many similar situations throughout the last few decades, so you should expect the part where Israel doesn’t care about what the world thinks.
This goes for building towns in Area C, military operations and many other things, where the international community (including the US) decide that Israel can’t do some basic rubbish that they’re allowed to do without a problem. But when they run into a situation, suddenly it’s all about their security, not their finger pointing business.
Speaking of finger pointing business, learn to be nice to each other. I don’t care if the person you’re pointing at comes from a certain group known for terrorism, or if someone comes from a group that you reject because of false religious rules that you made up. Because otherwise, you’re no better than those countries.
If that’s it, then I don’t see any reason to trust anyone to not become a monster once they’re acting out of certain interests or ideologies that harm people.
