Much of it going to foreign bank accounts and to funding terror.
No matter what they do, the geniuses of the EU will fork over money to a criminal enterprise to stick it to the Jews, and to keep them off their streets in Europe.

‘The Palestinian people’s most reliable partner’: EU grants €7.05 million to pay for April salaries and pensions
Today the European Union has contributed €7.05 million to the payment of the April salaries and pensions of approximately 70,000 Palestinian civil servants and pensioners of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. This contribution, made through the PEGASE mechanism, adds to that of the governments of Denmark (c.€5.36 million), Ireland (€1.0 million), Italy (€1.0 million), Luxembourg (€1.0 million) and The Netherlands (c.€0.98 million).
“The EU has consistently sought both to help ensure the well-being of the Palestinian population and – in the context of a commitment to a two-state solution – engage in Palestinian institution-building. Over many years the EU has proven to be Palestinian people’s most reliable partner. The predictability of our financial support has always been guaranteed despite the very unpredictable political climate,” said the EU Representative Mr. John Gatt-Rutter.
“Following the recent political developments in the peace process, I want to reiterate the EU’s support for intra-Palestinian reconciliation behind President Abbas on clear and certain terms but also our call to remain focused on negotiations and on the unprecedented benefits which peace can bring. Negotiations are the best way forward. The extensive efforts deployed in recent months must not go to waste,” added the EU Representative.
Most of the European Union’s assistance to the Palestinian Authority is channelled through PEGASE, the financial mechanism launched in 2008 to support the PA Reform and Development Plan (2008-2010) and the subsequent PA Palestinian National Plan (2011-2013).
