When Will the EU Stop Supporting Anti-Israel Incitement?

(Jerusalem Post) Itai Reuveni - On Aug. 4, Israel's Channel 2 exposed Palestinian Ma'an TV's post of a music video and article titled "Song in Hebrew in Defense of Al Aqsa Mosque." The video shows footage of terrorist attacks committed against Israelis, accompanied by a Hebrew song with the lyrics: "I will clean my country of every Jew / I will strive for it with all my being." NGO Monitor research shows that Ma'an is currently the recipient of a 427,200 euro three-year grant (2016-2019) from the EU's Peacebuilding Initiative. This funding is provided regardless of the actions of members of the European Parliament, who on three occasions alerted the European Commission to Ma'an's glorification of terrorism and Holocaust denial.
