Oh, they’re so outraged, but I couldn’t care less.
“Bottom line: EU agreed to fund and build in Area C only with coordination and permission from Israel. As a strategy, they are in fact building on the edges of Israeli communities to limit “expansion”. In reality, these encroachments are not only tactical, but a security threat. While Faaborg-Anderson claims to fund only “projects”, the money is fungible. Loose supervision is the way the EU and organizations like WCC and Christian Aid slip cash to BDS and terror actors.”
Settler group accuses EU envoy of supporting ‘terror state’
In video, ‘Jerusalem Periphery Forum’ shows ambassador Faaborg-Andersen in Hannibal Lecter mask, slams EU housing aid to Palestinians
Settler group on Sunday released a video that accused the European Union’s ambassador to Israel of working to “establish a terror state.”
The video accuses Lars Faaborg-Andersen, the Danish head of the EU’s delegation in Israel, of “undermining Israel’s sovereignty, ignoring the law, building wherever he wants and establishing a terror state — on Route 1!” The group was apparently referring to prefabricated homes built in the E1 area between Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim.
The accusation relates to mobile homes presented by the EU to Palestinian and Bedouin families living in the West Bank area east of Jerusalem, which Israel has charged amount to illegal construction by the European umbrella body.
“Andersen must be restrained!” flashes onto the screen at the video’s conclusion, alongside a mockup photo of Andersen with a Hannibal Lecter mask across his face.
Background info from 7mos ago:
Israel and the EU established diplomatic relations in 1959. TheRebel.media recently sat down with the Ambassador of the EU to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, to discuss this complicated relationship. He is particularly critical of Israeli “settlements.”
Because Israel is a democracy, the EU is far more critical of them than of other Middle Eastern countries. This double standard extends to EU NGOs pushing BDS campaigns, even though the Ambassador insists that the EU is against BDS.
Also there is this from Caroline Glick who sheds the mask from supposed EU’s strict adherence to international law, which they wield like a club at Israel every chance they can.
