JERUSALEM — Israel on Sunday suspended contacts with European Union representatives on Mideast peace issues to protest the 28-nation bloc’s decision to label Israeli exports from the West Bank. The decision, which deepened a fissure with the EU over the labeling issue, came as a rash of Palestinian attacks showed no signs of relenting. In Sunday’s violence, Palestinians carried out two new stabbing attacks — wounding a woman and a police officer. One of the assailants was shot dead. … The EU says it opposes boycotts, and says its move is a matter of consumer protection.

Hmmmm … “a matter of consumer of consumer protection,” eh? Nothing to do with any boycott, don’tchaknow.

And Israel’s retaliation by “suspend[ing of] contacts with European Union representatives on Mideast peace issues to protest …?” Now THAT certainly ought to help bring about peace.
