EU Money Funds Terrorists
EU Money Funds Terrorists

Israel’s Military Advocate General filed indictments against the terrorists involved in the killing of Malachi Rosenfeld a month ago in the Binyamin area. The lead murderer's name is Ahmad Najar, fwho had already been imprisoned in an Israeli jail for the murder of six Israelis in 2004. After his release as part of the “Shalit deal”, Najar received a monthly stipend from the Palestinian Authority, which he used to train and arm his terror cell.

It is a bitter irony that part of the terrorist’s salaries has been paid by the European Union. From 1994 to 2011, the EU donated €4.26 billion to the Palestinian Authority through many different channels, this without taking into account individual EU states’ donations to the PA. The EU has become the largest single donor to the Palestinians, contributing about €500 million ($720 million).

Salaries to Palestinian Arab prisoners convicted of terrorism are up to five times higher than the average Palestinian Arab salary in Judea and Samaria.
Michael Theurer, chairman of the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgetary Control, revealed that since 2007, Palestinian Authority civil servants in Gaza also received their salaries partly funded through EU aid. And the salaries to Palestinian Arab prisoners convicted of terrorism are up to five times higher than the average Palestinian Arab salary in Judea and Samaria.

PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affaire, Issa Karake, said that “the Europeans want their money that comes to us to remain clean – not to go to families of those they claim to be terrorists. ... These (prisoners) are heroes”. European lawmakers cannot claim any excuse in funding the terrorists, since they have written a virtual blank check for the Palestinian Arabs. And the NGOs involved in de-legitimization of Jews are funded not only by Arab states, but also by the European Union.

A few days after the European Union took Hamas off the black list of terrorist organizations, Palestinian Arab terrorists almost burned alive Ayala Shapira, an 11 year old Jewish girl, a victim of terror whom the European lawmakers had easily turned into a “symbol of occupation”. Europe gave the moral green light to attack the Jews. Now we discover that part of the EU money was used to slaughter a Jew named Malachi Rosenfeld.

Shakespeare’s Shylock and his pound of flesh have caused shudders in many generations of Jews. Now, by financing Palestinian Arab armed anti-Semitism, Europe is asking the Jews another pound of flesh. Anxious to get rid of Israel.
