JD: The European Union spokesperson came out and said that the rockets being fired towards Israel must be stopped.
JR: This statement that the EU is calling for a de-escalation of the military cross border action it’s actually come out of what is the European Union diplomatic service which is the European external action service is the name of it. These are actually the diplomats appointed by the European Union.
There is a voice of sense that can come out of there. The purpose of de-escalation is that we have the attacks are coming from Gaza for example and it’s indiscriminate attacks. And then Israel will retaliate on terrorist targets that are very clear. You know, tunnel terror itself etc. The EU keeps its stand that there’s only a political solution that can put the end to the violence. Ultimately they’re looking for a two state.
