Europe to pursue Area C projects (EU attack on Israel)
YNet News ^ | 01.12.12, 07:44 | Elior Levy

The European Union has decided to pursue a series of steps which may undermine Israel's control of Area C in the West Bank, an official EU document obtained by Ynet on Thursday suggests.

The Oslo Accords divided the West Bank into three areas of control: Area A which is under the Palestinian Authority's full control; Area B, which is under Palestinian civil controls and shared Israeli-Palestinian security control; and Area C, which is controlled by Israel. …

A Western diplomat familiar with the document told Ynet that the Europeans have decided to simply skip Israeli regulations: "What Europe is essentially saying here is that because Area C is vital for sustaining a viable Palestinian state, we will support whatever needs to be done for the sale of Palestinian development in the area regardless of Israel's planning policy."

He confirmed that the step was meant to reduce the amount of necessary building permits, saying that "European funding of vital projects like water infrastructure will be independent of Israeli authorities' approval."

This really is a declaration of war by the EU on Israel. They have no respect for Israeli sovereignty; none whatsoever. If the USA had any guts, we'd send troops into the Berlaymont Building right now.

OK, eurabians, fund the projects. Guess who will own the infrastructure when you are done spending the money? Bingo!

Israel should throw the EU out once and for all, declare them irrelevant, and just tell everyone to shove their Pieces of Israel process.

"European funding of vital projects ..."

The Europeans are going to find that soon "vital projects" will mean putting down violent insurrections in their own countries as they collapse. They are not going to have time and money to meddle where they don't belong.

Don’t worry about that. They’ll get around to fixing the “beneficial crisis” when they get everything they want out of it . . . but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t going to engage in their other designs in the meantime (as outlined herein).

I think I'm as much a supporter of Israel as anyone here, but why exactly should we (Americans) send troops anywhere because of an act of war against Israel?

Have we ever done so? Has Israel ever even hinted at such a request?

And, BTW, I do think I pay a lot of attention, but I had to look up what this Berlaymont Building is. (It's some European Hdqrs Bldg in Brussels.)

Also, acts of war against Israel are exceedingly common in case you haven't noticed, but this is the first call I've seen by anyone for American intervention. Did I miss the others or is there something special about this one?

Thanks Olog-hai.

But Area C is not sovereign Israeli territory. Israel has never annexed those territories. Israeli law does not apply in those territories (its under military administration). The official Israeli status of those territories has since 1967 been set as ‘disputed’ by Meir Shagmar the AG at the time.

I think the Berlaymont Building is on sovereign Belgian land though.

Really, who decides such things? If it's the European Union, then they're doing nothing short of crusading.

Then the Belgians ought to take it back from the bureaucrats.
