      Germany: No 'Settlements' in Cooperation Agreements


      Germany is conditioning research support and cooperation with Israel on the exclusion of Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, AFP reported on Thursday, citing the Haaretz newspaper.

      According to the report, Berlin's decision "represents a significant escalation in European measures against the settlements." Haaretz noted that a 1986 treaty of the German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development states that the foundation will only sponsor projects "within the geographic areas under the jurisdiction of the State of Israel" before the 1967 Six Day War.
