Hater of Trump And Israel May Be Next Head Of European Union | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's note: This informational nugget was sent to me by Ben Shapiro, who represents the Daily Wire, and since this is one of the most topical news events, it should be published on BCN.

    This article was written by Hank Berrien.

    This week, the man who has said Israel just has to live with the fact that Iran wants to destroy it was nominated to be the foreign policy chief of the European Union, putting him in the position where he would be likely to succeed EU Chief Federica Mogherini in November.

    As The Times of Israel reports, Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell's appointments must still be confirmed by the European Parliament. Borrell is a member of his country's ruling Socialist Workers' Party.

    Bas Belder, a Dutch member of the European Parliament who is strongly supportive of Israel, tweeted, "More difficult times [are] ahead between the EU and Israel I fear."

  • As Politico reported in February, Borrell is complacent about the fact that the despotic theocratic Iranian regime wants to destroy Israel; commenting on the U.S. leaving the Iran nuclear deal under President Trump, he ripped Trump, saying, "The agreement is dead, but not for us. The Americans decided to kill it, unilaterally as they do things without any kind of previous consultation, without taking care of what interests the Europeans have." When he was asked whether the U.S. perspective was correct, given Iran's vow to destroy Israel, he answered, "We are not children following what they say. We have our own prospects, interests and strategy and we will continue working with Iran. It would be very bad for us if it goes on to develop a nuclear weapon ... Iran wants to wipe out Israel; nothing new about that. You have to live with it."

    After the Hamas-led riots on the Israeli border in May 2018, when Hamas planned to instigate violence, and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley bluntly told the U.N., "Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States decided to move our embassy. This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday," Borrell wrote in Republica that the celebrations in Jerusalem over the United States finally moving its embassy there were "covered in blood as this black Monday reflects the dehumanization of the Palestinians by a large part of the Israeli political class and society."

    As The Times of Israel noted:

  • The embassy opening fell on the deadliest day of the so-called Great March of Return, with Palestinians rioting, and in at least one incident opening fire, at the Gaza border at the behest of the Hamas terrorist organization. The Israeli army responded with live fire among other means, killing 62 Palestinians that day and the next. According to Hamas, 50 of the 62 were its members, and three others were from the Islamic Jihad terror group.

    In February, Borrell ripped Trump as he lauded Iran, tweeting, "Iran remains an obsession for the U.S. government. They still do not have diplomatic relations and also Trump has withdrawn from the Nuclear Pact and imposed sanctions. Surely Iran can survive sanctions if Trump is not re-elected. Otherwise, the regime could revive the nuclear program for military purposes and multiply its interventions in the region."
