A very unusual case of smuggling took place on Thursday, as huge quantities of gold, steroids and smart phones were found in the car of a European Union (EU) representative in Israel, as he drove into the country from Jordan.
Dozens of kilograms of gold, hundreds of smartphones and a full package of steroid drugs were discovered by customs inspectors in the car as it tried to pass through the Allenby Border Crossing from Jordan, reports Channel 2.
The EU diplomat was detained and later released, and his driver - an Arab resident of the northern Atarot neighborhood of Jerusalem - was detained for investigation. The driver had his arrest extended to next Sunday by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court. ...

Hundreds of PHONES..?
That’s the scary part.
Oh I always carry hundreds of smartphones on me. And bars of gold.
This does not appear to be Kosher!
isn’t this rich!
So THAT’S how they get the cellphones from Missouri to the terrorists. EU diplomatic pouches.
EU rot from day one
I notice they are careful to not identify him by name or country.
Got himself in a pickle!
It’s like saying “Soviet”.
Unlike the USA, this can get you permanently bared from ever again entering Israel.
I’m sure it was just a misunderstanding /sar
I wonder what he sold in Jordan for all the gold, steroids and phones?
Just a traveling salesman...
My guess is nothing was sold, as it was more likely provided to be smuggled somewhere to support Arab terrorist activities.
I was looking for that info. At link?
A few snips from the article, no name/nationality for the EU “political adiviser to the EU delegation in the Middles East”. 999 to 1 he’s a filthy mozlem.
The off-road vehicle in which the stash was found belongs to the EU, and was being used by the political adviser to the EU delegation in the Middle East. The car was brought for inspection near Jericho after trying to cross in from Jordan.
...later they unearthed another 700 smartphones, in addition to dozens of kilograms of gold bars and jewelry thought to be made of pure gold.
The illegal activity associated with the EU comes the same Thursday that the IDF demolished nine EU-funded illegal Arab buildings in the northern Jordan Valley.
We will probably have to wait until the Russians decided to tell us. I wouldn’t expect the European press to tell us, it looks like the Israelis don’t want us to know, and the American press will do what the New World Order tells them to do.
In the old days I would have guessed France or Belgium, but these days, there’s a race to the bottom in Europe.
Ya think he was smuggling them to Israeli sympathizers? /sarchasm
And contrary to comments in the thread, I don't think that EU reps enjoy diplomatic immunity.
At least not by the "palestininan" koranimals.
I also find it unexpectedly curious that Jordan dropped the ball. They certainly should know better.
