Palestinians threaten Europe with Muslim minority.
A couple of warnings from the Palestinians.
First, from the PLO representative in the EU, Leila Shahid, regarding the compromise resolution accepted by the EU in Strasbourg. Shahid was concerned that the statement did not mention article 2 of the Euro-Mediterranean agreement with Israel, which states the relations between the two will be based on respect for human rights.
Shahid deplored the compromise, saying that “A watered down text feeds the violence of the citizens of Arab origins living in Europe. They have the impression that the same rules don’t apply to everybody when it comes to human rights.”
Leila Shahid on the war in Gaza
Leila Shahid, the Palestinian envoy to the EU, spoke on French TV about the dangers of the war in Gaza. It could destabilize the region, bring to a clash of civilizations and should especially concern Europe, given its own Muslim minority.

The second comes from Talal Nassar, the chief Hamas spokesman in Syria:
Mr Nassar warned that Europe’s Muslim population would not forget the EU’s lack of hard action.
“The European position through this was not good and effectively supported the Zionists,” he said. “They should understand that Europe will be the first to get damaged by the Islamic movements there. Revolutions always arise out of injustice.
“Now the Arabs see Europe as raising empty slogans while doing nothing on the ground. If these massacres had been done against animals Europe would have been upset about animal rights. When it is Arabs or Muslims being killed no one does anything.”
