Israel's Friend Germany To Head EU

Germany will be taking charge of the EU for the next six months, which should help Israel's image in a continent not known for supporting Israeli causes.

(Jerusalem Post) Israeli diplomatic officials are breathing a sigh of relief that Germany, considered one of Israel's strongest supporters in Europe, will be taking over the rotating presidency of the European Union on Monday for the next six months.

The president of the EU, according to officials in Jerusalem, has a great deal of influence over the agenda and the tone of the statements that come out of the EU.

Germany's presidency will last into the middle of the summer, which is Israel's main tourism season. Hopefully with Germany at the helm for a while, more Europeans will be given a taste of what Israel is all about from personal experience (instead of just the media).
