France Keeping Funds from Judea-Samaria


In an interview with Arutz Sheva, French Parliament member Meir Haviv spoke about France’s actions and attitudes towards Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria. Haviv, who is Jewish, has recently been waging an epic battle against the French government who has been keeping, delaying and rerouting funds from organizations active over the green line.

Haviv explained that every French Parliament member is allowed to choose organizations to donate to which help French citizens all over the world. Haviv, a Parliament member who feels that it is up to him to represent the State of Israel's interests within the French government, finds it appropriate to transfer money to Israeli organizations as well.
