More sanity from Europe

"This dispute [ie. Israeli-Palestinian] cannot be solved by military means and certainly not through acts of terrorism in which innocent individuals become victims of terror. Not only is it a solemn duty to condemn and oppose such acts, measures must be taken against them. "

- Czech Foreign Minister Jan Kavan

Kavan sounds clear and principled, but remarks like that have not made the Czech Republic popular in the Arab world recently. Kavan cancelled a meeting with Arafat and had meetings cancelled in Egypt. See the not-so-clear details here.
