Israel in the EU?


This seems to have been posted only as a sidenote: Ma’ariv is reporting that, according to Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, the Czech Republic has invited Israel to join the European Union as a full-fledged member.

Israel as a member of the EU? Will it have to agree to hate itself in order to join?

Why is the Czech Republic acting as spokesman for the EU? Isn’t there an official protocol?
Why would Israel want to? No passport required to gain entry to the country?

Ha ha ha, that’s priceless, Sari. Hate itself, indeed.

Just out of curiosity, how can the Czech Republic speak for the EU on membership matters?

Heh, Israel is not in Europe, wherever its people may be from. And Turkey is not in Europe either.
