‘We Europeans created the problem’: Analyst holds Europe accountable for Israel-Gaza conflict

Yanis Varoufakis says European countries share responsibility for the atrocities being committed in Gaza. “We Europeans created the problem. … We are playing a vicious role in its perpetuation,” Varoufakis told Al Jazeera. The former finance minister accused EU foreign policy chief Borrell of hypocrisy for saying not enough pressure was being applied on Israel, asserting that the EU was “collectively arming” Israel. “As we speak, Germany, France, Italy are sending the armaments that are being used in Rafah to kill people,” Varoufakis added. He said that while the official EU position was to support a two-state solution, European countries are “completely” in support of the Netanyahu government, “whose life’s work has been the destruction of any prospect of a Palestinian state”.
