The EU is whining that Israel should pay them back for destroying structurers that were built partly with their money. This isn’t the first time you’ve heard organizations saying that Israel should reimburse them for structures destroyed either for being illegal, or in war.
European Union officials alleged that Israel demolished EU-funded housing shelters outside of Ma’aleh Adumim earlier in the week, AFP reported.
Eighteen tin huts built to house Palestinians during the unusually severe winter weather this year were “partially funded by EU member states,” according to the report.
EU officials demanded financial compensation from Israel to Brussels in response to the demolition of three of the structures, Belgian news service EurActiv reported.
“We should ask for compensation from Israel whenever EU-funded humanitarian aid projects are destroyed,” EurActiv quoted an anonymous EU diplomat as saying.
I say absolutely. Right after the EU reimburses Israel for damages caused by Palestinian terrorists who receive their funding from European NGOs, the EU, and the United Nations, and then use that money to create weapons, bombs, and missiles and murder Israelis with them.
“We will raise this issue with the relevant Israeli authorities,” Maja Kocijancic, a spokesperson for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, told EurActiv.
Send them to me. I’ll be happy to tell them, in the choicest of words, what I think about their request.
