The EU is increasingly pessimistic about the chances of resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and about the role Europe can play. The main responsibility for the failure of the peace process lies with successive Israeli governments, and to a lesser but still significant extent with the PA and Hamas. The position taken by the US has made peace even more remote. On the EU side, the lack of consensus and political will have proved a serious constraint on meaningful action. But the High Representative need not be impotent on the issue. Borrell should not neglect policies with teeth and rely entirely on diplomacy, as Mogherini did.
