How hostile European officials are toward Israel! They refuse to allow us Israelis to handle our own affairs safely and well.

And look how bubbly and happy EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini looks here, photographed with an Iranian leader:

Look here at the same Frederica – scowling at Israel’s leader:

Now for the flip side.

There are good people everywhere.
Here is an original email exchange  between a European  and an Israeli.
The European had just completed a long business trip to Israel. The  Israeli is an engineer he worked with.
At the end, please find the moral of the story.

The European’s email to his Israeli counterparts is entitled  "Greetings and thanks":

To say you goodbye,  is really a sad moment for me.

From any one of you, working and sharing goals together, I’ve learned something. Not only by a professional standpoint.

From every one of you, other than work, I’ve learned a different approach, a personal mindset, a way of being.

And this is what I consider a gift  each of you has given me. Teaching me something different.

It has been really a privilege to work with you and spent together some good off-time.

Someone of you knows about my feeling for Israeli people and interest in his history. 

To work with an Israeli company added a deep delta to my personal knowledge and personal growth.

To meet such a good people and nice fellas, as you, is another great opportunity I have had in my career.

And I will bring with me a lot of good memories of you.

To all of you, I wish all the best you deserve. Professionally, personally and to your families.

Health and serenity. 

May God bless you and your families all.

Good luck!

R.

Response to R. from an Israeli engineer who got the email:

Dear R.,

(personal content deleted)

Please take upon yourself to be an active positive ambassador for Israel.

The world in general and Europe in particular, judge us unfairly by a much different standard than anyone else (an attitude unfortunately driven by anti-Semitism and financial/political interests).

Again, Good luck and be well,

E.

 European responds to Israeli:

Thank you so much for your kind words.

I will.  You can be sure.

Every time I have the opportunity to talk with friends and mates, I try to show things by an “Israeli standpoint”.

At least, as far my limited knowledge of Israel history allows me.

Sometimes, after the chat, I can read from their eyes the doubt that media could not report the news in a complete way.

Kind regards.

R.

The moral of the story:

Never miss an opportunity to help Israel.

And never miss an opportunity to ask others to help Israel.

The worst thing that can happen, is that they will say no.

I assume everybody knows what issues should be raised (Iran, Israeli right and obligation to settle our land, the war against terrorism and incitement...).

But if you need more information, don’t hesitate to contact me, using the following e-mail contact information:  sddym at bezeqint.net

For those who are inspired by the Torah, it is interesting that according to the Torah, God himself had the following to say about attitudes to Israel:

“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse".

In short – whether you’re Israeli or European, always stick up for Israel. It’s the right thing to do and eventually – it pays. It gives your life meaning.  Go for it.
