EU's Blame Game

The Annapolis summit is weeks away, but an EU envoy is already laying the groundwork to blame Israel for nearly anything that goes wrong in the Mideast should the summit fail. The Jerusalem Post quotes Marc Otte:

"The cost of failure is even bigger then in 2000," Otte told reporters in Brussels.

There were many more destabilizing elements in the Middle East now than there were seven years ago, he said.

Among those he listed were the threat of a nuclear Iran, the danger that Iraq would split, the strengthening of Hizbullah in Lebanon and the Hamas takeover of Gaza. . . .

The main question regarding the Annapolis meeting was not why would it work this time when it failed before, but rather, "What do we lose if it does not succeed," he said.

I don't see any blame for Israel in his comments. Can you point them out?
