Crazy Country, June 22, 2012
there is in the world one type of people who would have no problem in being good friends of Israel, also of an occupier and oppressor Israel. Last week Knesset Member Ze'ev Elkin, Chief Parliamentary Whip for the ruling government coalition, went off to Brussels in order to strengthen ties with Europe's extreme right parties. He noted that the State of Israel has much potential support among the European Far Right who hate the Muslims, though he did mention that one should be wary of neo-Nazis.
Representatives of Jewish communities in Europe, involved in a struggle against the extreme right-wing parties in their own countries, were not happy with Elkin's mission. To which Elkin responded: "The fact that there is a conflict of interest between Israel and Jewish communities is problematic, but a country can not remain without allies. The Liberals in Europe have already abandoned us and became an enemy, we should turn to whoever we can" (Yediot Ahronot, June 21, 2012).
