Israel and the EU

ISRAEL AND THE EU….Via Gallowglass comes this report from the Middle East:

[Israeli] Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom told a visiting European Union delegation on Tuesday that Israel was considering applying for membership of the bloc.

….”In principle, the minister thinks a possibility exists for Israel to join the EU since Israel and Europe share similar economies and democratic values,” he said.

Henry has some thoughts on this, which is more than I can say for myself. Every day I wonder if the world can get any stranger, and every day it does.
