This week, Israel’s Channel 13 aired a report exposing a six-page European Union document that allegedly reveals plans to assist the Palestinians in their quest to grab territory that comprises Area C of Judea and Samaria.
Area C refers to the portions of Judea and Samaria that Israel controls under the Oslo Accords.
The document in question was prepared by the EU Mission in Eastern Jerusalem and is reportedly classified as secret, JNS.org report.
“The six-page document calls for mapping the territory in order to prove Palestinian rights to the land and monitoring Israeli archaeological activity, as ancient Jewish ties reinforce Israeli claims,” explained JNS.
In addition, the document proposes “strengthening Palestinian infrastructure” in Israeli-controlled portions of Judea and Samaria and “supporting Palestinians with legal aid.”
The EU responded to the Channel 13 report by refusing to comment on the document in question and repeating boilerplate statements about the Union’s “commit[ment] to a two-state solution with Jerusalem as the future capital of both states.”
In response, an Israeli watchdog called Regavim, which monitors land-grabs in Judea and Samaria, commented, “The State of Israel must take decisive action against this brazen meddling and prevent the establishment of a terrorist state in the heart of the Jewish homeland.”
“The matter is nothing less than bizarre. The allies of the State of Israel, the European governments, are actively working to change the borders of our country. In the past, this was a reason for wars between nations,” added Shlomo Ne’eman, who heads the Gush Etzion Council and the Yesha Council.
