Never, ever, EVER trust the EU to be principled or spine-endowed. And always trust a Frenchman to side with the enemy. I am deeply ashamed having to share my continent with these cretins.
From the Jerusalem Post (h/t LGF):
A Hamas official confirmed on Monday that France held secret talks with its representatives on behalf of the European Union, a break in the policy of isolating the new Palestinian government.
The Palestinian source further claimed that France was attempting to improve relations between the European Community and the group that Israel had urged countries to reject.
