European Union Policy Against Israel

E.U. – Rapid Deployment Force Aimed At Israel

For some time, I have detected and written about the stench of European collaboration with Jewish leftists and various Arabists in the U.S. State Department. It was hard to put together, because such groups are not anxious to announce their intentions, nor show collaboration.

However, more is surfacing. For example: The E.U. (European Union) wishes to assemble a RDF (Rapid Deployment Force). Such a Force needs a raison d’etre (reason for being) or at least an excuse. One reason, will be to deploy European and possibly Canadian forces, in the Middle East to forcibly separate Israel and the Arab Palestinians.  (Read this article and plan carefully.) That translates into sending forces into Israel against that nation’s will, to ostensibly force into existence another Arab Palestinian State. This requires “protecting the unwarlike Arab Palestinians after they conduct Terrorist operations, from Israeli counter-Terrorism assaults. Seemingly unconnected, it is in fact a direct extension of the Bush “Road Map” plan, which will start its implementation at the end of January 2003.

Since the E.U. does not have any troops of its own, it wishes to borrow from existing NATO’s standing military, including: men, equipment, tanks, planes, ammunition, planning, computer technology, etc. Much of this armament has been supplied by America (at U.S. tax-payer’s expense). Any decisions by NATO to allow this transfer must have approval of the American Administration.

Since this may seem contrary to the Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rumsfeld mind-set, is it possible that such approval has been given by the U.S. State Department, as the main operator of the Quartet, which includes the E.U., United Nations and Russia? Perhaps the State Department even orchestrated this concept.

Let’s keep in mind that rarely do the Europeans take responsibility for solving their own problems but (almost) always rely upon America to intervene. However, when it comes to a small target like Israel and the Europeans’ economic alliances with the Arabs, the E.U./NATO may just take a shot at putting together an army with Israel targeted as its first “practice” operation.


(Note: Based upon reports in Military Journals over the last several years about the E.U. planning to assemble an E.U. strike force, I wrote several articles forecasting that their first target was likely to be Israel.) Given the rise of anti-Semitism across Europe with virtual silence by their government leaders, it seems plain they approve and even need this hostility if they are to come down hard on Israel.

Putting together a force to attack a Jewish State under the cloak of a “peacekeeping force” needs a certain amount of leftist Jewish cover and collaboration. Enter Shimon Peres, Yossi Beilin — the Oslo crew — and now Amram Mitzna, who is running for the Prime Ministry for the Labor Party. [This was written 12/22/02 during the last Israeli election for Prime Minister.]

Mitzna announced he would unilaterally withdraw from Gaza and much of the West Bank, allowing Arab Palestinians to take over. Like former Israeli PM Ehud Barak, he blusters that, if after this “withdrawal” (retreat), should the Arab Palestinians threaten Israel’s security, we would take strong action. (Note: Neither after the failure of the Oslo Accords, nor after Barak’s retreat from Lebanon and subsequent Terror attacks by the Arab Palestinians, was any strong action taken.)

The E.U.’s Rapid Deployment Force would, according to Mitzna, Peres, and Beilin, enter to protect whom, the Israelis or the Arab Palestinians? It seems clear Mitzna was in close collaboration with Peres and Beilin in the development of a concept wherein the E.U. Forces would be used to pressure Israel into compliance with the moribund Oslo Accords and all its retrograde successors.

On December 13th, NATO approved a strategic partnership with the E.U. In essence, NATO is accepting and collaborating in the use of its forces to accommodate what will be a European Army to be used against the Jewish State of Israel. I expect there will be blustering denials but, in effect, NATO will be used under another name, forcing Israel’s submission to Arab demands. (The word: “Islam” means “submission.”)

This is a question which Congress must put to the Bush Administration — especially the Arabist State Department led by Secretary of State Colin Powell. What is the American role in agreeing to this sham collaboration? Did we agree to this new splinter military in order to pretend that it was not our decision and that we (that is, the U.S. State Department), had no role in this perfidious betrayal of our devoted and dependable ally and friend — Israel?

It has been clear for some time that the Peres Peace Institute and Beilin’s Economic Cooperation Foundation have been receiving substantial funds from members of the E.U.  Their base of operations has been moved to Europe with the headquarters in Rome and activities in Italy, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Norway and Great Britain. Much, if not all of this, has gone unreported to Israel’s tax authorities, nor has Attorney General Elaykim Rubenstein instituted court action for discovery. Why are Peres and Beilin being paid this money, and what role are they expected to play in extending what seems to be a replay of the failed Oslo plan? What connection do Peres, Beilin and Mitzna have with the E.U. Foreign Policy Chief, Javier Solana?

Solana has been the E.U. voice, bitterly complaining that the Bush State Department’s “Road Map” has not yet been released to the public. It appears that the “Road Map” was to be the lynch pin to a massive campaign of pressure to establish another Arab State of Palestine. Connect that to the development of an E.U.’s Rapid Deployment Force, using NATO’s armaments as the stick of force — and the loop closes.

Solana, speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, alongside former U.S. National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzeinski, said: “It’s time (for the E.U. and U.S.) to work in a more parallel manner.” (Note: Brzeinski has always been thought of as hostile to Israel in the extreme.) Clearly, the E.U. wishes to get on with the bashing of Israel but, the Bush Administration temporarily needs Israel to NOT respond if attacked as she was in 1991 by 42 SCUDs launched by Saddam Hussein. Because Bush needs Israel’s obedience now for the attack against Iraq; therefore, the State Department’s revised version of the “Road Map” has not been released to the public or to Israel. (The release date has been extended to after the Israeli election on January 28th.) Strangely, the attack against Iraq is to be between January 28th and February 28th. The “Road Map” attack appears to be timed to appease the Arabs.

Solana said (regarding the Middle East “Road Map”) that, “There has not been the necessary momentum.” The “Road Map” is very close but we have not been able to move — a single inch. He also said: “The train has not even left the station,” which I shall comment about in another article. (Jews, trains and the Europeans are too memorably connected.)


For some time, a pro-Arab cabal has been assembling to push Israel into an untenable position, leading to the diminishment of her critical mass on her way to oblivion. Many nations and corporations, who rely on access to Arab markets, decided that if the Arabs cannot be pacified, the irritant to their psyche had to go. The Jewish State, not having succumbed to seven Arab wars of intended annihilation, plus continual unremitting Terrorism, at least since 1920, of course is an irritant to the macho self-image of the Arab oil states and is scheduled for removal.

The players gathering to implement the plan are the E.U. (long known for its pro-Arab/anti-Israel position), the Arabist U.S. State Department, closely linked to U.S. and multi-national oil interests. Certain powerful members of the U.N., particularly the Russians, are similarly dependent on selling to the Arab markets, especially armaments. Last, but not least, collaborating Jewish leftists are determined to de-Judaize the Jewish State — no matter what the price.

I have for several years commented on what I felt to be a European assembly of forces whose purpose, if not to attack Israel, will most certainly be to attempt to force compliance with Arab and therefore, European, wishes. These most evil and anti-Semitic forces are now coalescing under the mind numbing slogans of peace — shortly to be re-named “The Road Map.”

There seems to be a belief, that by bribing the Arabs with the sacrifice of Israel, they will cease Global Terrorism. Even if they really don’t believe it, their animus against the Jewish State pushes them in the direction of enjoying the elimination of the Jewish people. If you wish to deny this, take a good, hard look at the years between 1932 and 1948. Then look at present day Europe and observe their ramped-up Jewish hatred.

Radical Islam cannot be cured, altered or pacified. It is a blood cult, a very large blood cult, with its followers fervently dedicated to do whatever is asked of them by their religious and military superiors, who wrap themselves in the cloak of Islam. Even those who believe themselves to be peaceful Muslims do not understand how quickly they can be brought to a state of rage. One cannot ignore the violent attacks by Muslims against non-Muslims all over the world.

Cults are mind-warping beliefs. Through the centuries, hundreds, even thousands of cults, have been dedicated to human sacrifice. No amount of appeasement or psychological de-programming would change their beliefs. Islam is a massive cult dedicated to a god, Allah, who they believe demands full and total obedience or death for those who defy its will.

The personality and conscience of a religious cultist is sublimated to his or her beliefs as taught by mullahs or terrorist leaders who claim to speak for Islam. Some realize that their beliefs hold them captive, in a way that makes anything they do acceptable and without conscience. Most cultists however, do not know how much they are in the grip of both the cult and its high priests, who tell their followers they speak for their supreme one. Muslims steeped in the worship of Islam and true believers, cannot refuse their priests and risk the Hell they are threatened with. Therefore, their lives are offered as a gift for a gift. They are ready to gift their lives because, in return, they received the gift of eternal life in Allah’s presence. Thus the ease, even anticipation, of being a Said (Martyr) will entice most Muslims to accept death while committing death to the non-believer infidel (Christians and Jews, especially).

This then is what the Europeans, the State Department and others of our modern world face, but refuse to acknowledge. It is an ancient cult that has re-awakened and demands sacrifice. We, the Judeo-Christian West, think we speak the same language but we really do not. We confuse words with deeply imbedded beliefs. When we talk to an Oxford-taught Muslim in a blue suit, we think: “He is just like me.” He is not. Look past the language; look past the suit and, if you are perceptive, you will see something out of the past — the 7th century.

Radical Fundamentalist Islam has re-awakened and demands your obedience or your death. It will accept your first sacrifice of Israel and then demand the next sacrifice — you, your nation, your treasure, your weapons — whatever it believes it deserves as Muslims for the sake of Allah. Go deal with that, my European friends.

About the Author



Manny Winston, my late husband, flew from Chicago to Israel to volunteer during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. He arrived with US secretary of state Henry Kissinger’s first ceasefire on October 21; I followed on October 30th.

Manny was picking grapefruit at Kibbutz Dalia when his friend, the artists, Sol Baskin called with a permit to enter the war zone. They drove to meet Gen. Ariel “Arik” Sharon at the Suez Canal. “Shalom” Baskin was part of the Mahal volunteers from America to the IDF, and a commissioned officer in Mahal. He was Arik’s commanding officer during the 1948 War of Independence, and they remained friends.

Manny brought his two Leica cameras and photographed an outstanding photo exposé on October 29 and 30. He saw and smelled the “killing fields” He met with Sharon, the young soldiers who had survived the destroyed tanks and he saw how the blown tank turret, flipped upside down destroyed the lives of those brave souls inside.

Manny did see these effects and, because he was a true Renaissance man, a graphic thinker who was a painter, sculptor and political analyst, he envisioned a solution to the weak point of the tank. He described a technique to conquer that weakness to Sharon, who sent him to Maj.-Gen. Israel Tal, the developer of the famed Merkava tank.

Manny’s “leap of imagination” created what became “Blazer” or “Reactive” Armor. He designed rectangles of hollow metal boxes with an explosive charge inside. These ‘so-called’ “skirts” were placed around the neck of the tank turret so that when hit, the explosive charge therein would push the incoming ballistic missile out, thereby saving the tank and its crew. This was compatible with the primary goal of Gen. Tal’s Merkava tanks: Defense of the Tank Crew.

That, along with speed, maneuverability, effective shooting and protection against damaging desert sand, were what made the Merkava “The Tank a Jewish Mother Would Love,” as Manny called it.

He also designed a better bridge for crossing the Canal – easier to carry and assemble, and less susceptible to the huge holes the tanks had already created on the day’s existing bridge.

Manny continued to submit creative concepts for defense and offense to Israel’s military industries – for which he received his Israeli citizenship and security clearance. Many of his concepts and ideas were adopted throughout the years. He never asked for credit or remuneration but even today, I see his concepts being used, either in action or in military articles. Someday I hope to publish the “WINSTON DEFENSE DESIGNS,” either online or in a book – a very big book, with his original drawings.

The Yom Kippur War was a seminal turning point in Israel’s history. We did win. It was a miracle, given the forces mounted against us, in number and backed up the Soviet Union.

We have 40 mounted color photographs by Emanuel A. Winston, ready to show at a traveling or permanent exhibition, which will enhance our appreciation of what our men and generals went through and achieved.

The Yom Kippur War was also a seminal turning point in the lives of the Winston family. It was our second trip to Israel. We had tried to make Aliyah in 1962 but didn’t succeed. I made Aliyah on November 7, 1979. Manny died on June 12, 2012, and is now buried on the Mount of Olives.

I sold the home he built in Highland Park, Illinois, in August 2012, and brought his manuscripts and published papers, to the home I built in Israel in 1992. Two of our sons and their families also live in the Jewish state.

My heartfelt message for you, the reader, is to invite all my friends, family and Internet friends to come to Israel. This is where a Jew can be truly Jewish.
