Israelis and Palestinians will face more unrest over the next year without a revival of a long-fractured Middle East peace process that the EU must be part of, Ireland's foreign minister said Friday.Hurdles for the European Union include its range of positions – from Germany's strong support for Israel to Sweden's 2014 decision to officially recognize the state of Palestine, something Ireland considered three years ago.Coveney has met Jason Greenblatt, Trump's Middle East envoy, and said it was crucial that the EU seek to influence U.S. plans that are being drawn up by Greenblatt and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner.The minister also said the EU is perceived by some in Israel as too pro-Palestinian, partly because of the EU's long-held opposition to Israeli settlements.
