The EU/UN War Against Israeli Control of "Area C"

(Jewish Policy Center) Benjamin Weinthal - One scandal that rarely garners headlines is illegal construction carried out in Judea and Samaria by the EU and UN. The Jerusalem Post reported in 2022 that the EU doled out half-a-billion dollars over the past seven years to support a Palestinian Authority plan to control Area C of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) - the disputed territory where 80% of biblical events unfolded. The Oslo Accords signed in 1993 designated Area C as under Israeli military and civilian control. Nearly 500,000 Israelis and 300,000 Palestinians live in Area C. In December, 40 members of Israel's Knesset charged the EU with working against the Jewish state, as evidenced by a leaked EU document showing how it seeks to illegally carve out territory for the creation of a Palestinian state. They wrote, "We learned of an official policy document of the European Union...that leaves no room for doubt as to the one-sidedness and animosity of the EU towards the State of Israel and the Jewish people. The document completely ignores our people's historical affinity to our homeland, completely ignores the political agreements and the status of the State of Israel in Area C and seeks to establish the 1949 borders as Israel's final-status permanent borders - in complete disregard of the Jewish communities in the area."
