Europe formalises link with its last settler colony

Despite the vote being put on the back burner by ordinary MEPs, Europe's 27 foreign ministers have voted unanimously to upgrade Israel's association with the EU. This is far worse than I imagined. See this from Ha'aretz:
As a result of the upgrade in relations, Israel's foreign minister will start meeting three times a year with all 27 EU foreign ministers. Other ministers will meet once a year with their European counterparts. Israel and the EU will also conduct a strategic dialogue on issues such as the peace process, the Iranian threat, counterterrorism and organized crime. In addition, the EU pledged to help Israel integrate into UN agencies and to include Israeli experts in EU peacekeeping forces.
We can now expect more settlement expansion, more child killing and more forcing Palestinians "on a diet" by these racist war criminals and all blessed, indeed collaborated in by the European Union.

Hang on, I just have to repeat this line to make sure I really saw it.
In addition, the EU pledged to help Israel integrate into UN agencies and to include Israeli experts in EU peacekeeping forces.
"Peacekeeping forces"? Israel...peacekeeping forces. A certain ring to it, yes? A society whose only cohesion is war is to participate in "peacekeeping". Where might they do that? Bosnia? Will Israel teach ethnic cleansing to Serbia perhaps so they make a thorough job of it without being punished? Really, what kind of peacekeeping could Israel credibly participate in? Answers on a post...stamp.
