Israel Demands EU Stop Its “Obsessive” Support for Illegal Palestinian Building


The Israel Foreign Ministry “summoned” the EU’s Deputy Head of Mission Mark Gallagher on Monday to demand the EU stop its “obsessive” support for illegal Palestinian building in Area C of the West Bank, the Jerusalem Post reports.  In recent years, the EU has provided modular housing for Palestinians in the area of Ma’ale Adumim and in the South Hebron Hills. The Foreign Ministry told Gallagher that the EU should respect Israeli law.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon said , “There are 32 humanitarian crises in the world, but [the EU] has chosen to disproportionately deal with what is happening in Area C, that without a doubt is not a humanitarian crisis.

Meanwhile, Ha’aretz reports that Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu told Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano two weeks ago, “Just as we didn’t approve illegal building by Jews in Amona, I won’t allow illegal building by Palestinians.”
