Palestinians Reject EU Moves to Block Funding for Terror-Linked NGOs

(Gatestone Institute) Khaled Abu Toameh - For many years, Palestinian organizations have received unconditional funding from Western donors. The Palestinian attitude was: "You Westerners owe us this money because you contributed to the establishment of Israel after World War II. Thus, you have no right to set any conditions for the funding. Just give us the money and shut up. Any refusal to comply with our demands will result in our rage, and possibly terrorism and other forms of violence, not only against Israel, but also against you 'infidels' in the West." Recently, the EU has had the audacity to demand that EU taxpayer money not end up in the hands of terrorist organizations who continue to work for the elimination of Israel. These terrorist organizations included those designated as such by the EU, such as Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The Palestinian opposition to the EU demand is based on the argument that this request is "humiliating" for the Palestinians. They are offended by the idea that their "cash cow" is now refusing to produce money for terrorist aims. It remains to be seen whether the Europeans will cave in to Palestinian threats and drop their demand that EU money actually feed hungry people rather than feed the Palestinian terrorists' hunger for Jewish blood.
