Digital Agenda for Europe overshadowed by Israel

I meant to write about the TTE Council’s conclusions on the Digital Agenda for Europe, but after the bloodbath by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on board the flotilla heading towards Gaza, I don’t feel up to it right now.

According to news outlets, the EU high representative Ashton has demanded an investigation and the EU ambassadors are meeting in Brussels today. Turkey has withdrawn its ambassador from Israel.

As often, reports from different sources have been contradictory, so it is important to establish the facts of what happened during the boarding of civilian (merchant) vessels on international waters, as well as the justifications for a blockade of 1.5 million inhabitants in Gaza.



If you feel up to it…


Here is a link to the document on the Digital Agenda:
