EU worried about decision to limit IDF cooperation over Green Line

Move to stop assistance to Union officials aiding Palestinians seen as retaliation to EU’s latest directive

The European Union expressed concern Friday over Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon’s decision to stop IDF cooperation with European Union officials in parts of the West Bank, and to prevent EU representatives from entering the Gaza Strip via Israel.

“The EU is concerned over reports in the Israeli media that the defense minister has announced a series of restrictions affecting the Union’s actions to support the Palestinian people,” said a spokesperson for EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton.

The spokesperson went on to claim that the EU had not received any official notice from Israeli authorities regarding the planned measures.

“A delegation is working [in Israel] to attain these urgent updates,” the spokesperson added.

Ya’alon’s orders were an apparent response to new EU guidelines published last week that explicitly ban the funding of and cooperation with Israeli institutions operating beyond the Green Line.

  1. Now that is funny. EU officials are used to landing at the orderly BG airport, being whisked to the PA or Gaza gateways, have IDF escorts and security, and so forth. Now, what do they do? Go to Jordan and try to get to PA gateways? No security, no 1st class accomodations, all those Israeli conveniences gone. Yep that is funny.

  2. The EU parliament isn’t even a friend of the Europeans. They rule over Europe like tiny kings without a care about what the people think or want. I’m glad to see Israel give the EU officials the same ‘respect’ which is given them by this ugly little group of anti-Jewish tyrants.
