A JPost article reports that Eurocrats in Brussels (250 out of 785) are chomping at the bit to resume direct funding to the terrorist Hamas lead government. One third of the EU parliament is in favor of ending the boycott of Hamas in spite of its refusal to recognize Israel, end terrorist violence against Israel and adherence to all agreements signed by the last government.
MEP Veronique De Keyser, a Belgian Socialist lawmaker in the European Parliament states:
“If we don’t end the boycott the region will descend into civil war and al-Qaida-type terrorist groups will emerge. The only solution is to recognize the government that was legitimately elected – and talk with all of its members,”
So here we are again with EU nitwits calling for more carrots and no sticks, while Hamas’ gangster government laughs to itself with delight. In all honesty, these same EU lawmakers (I would wager the majority) were against the boycott of Hamas before they’re against it now. They look to the present day crumbling of Palestinian society as proof that the boycott needs lifting, while willfully overlooking the Hamas’ intransigence that has lead themselves and their people to the brink of disaster.
The Eurocrat could hardly be worried over the fact that the Palestinians are flush with cash, it’s just that the cash never reaches the people who need it most. Aid to the Palestinians in 2006 has surpassed the previous year in spite of the embargo placed on the Hamas government. Has that influx of cash directly helped the Palestinian people or the multitude of terrorist militias? I’ll wager that the latter has received far more (lethal) aid than the average person living within the P.A.. More here. *L* KGS
Kumitonttu adds: “The idea of “legitimately elected” P.A. members of parliament is ridiculous:How legitimate was the candidate selection? How freely were the candidates able to speak their visions? How capable was the people to vote for the best candidates? How many of the voters can read?And out of those who can, can they read any news from media outside the supervision of the radicals?
I don’t see the elections were “legitimate”. Even if they were, don’t we have not only the right but the responsibility to tell them, we dislike your political goals?This is a typical situation, in which the terrorists are in a win-win -outcome. In both cases the financial aid continues, and in the best case, they will decide how to share it.”
