No. 07/02, Strasbourg, October 24, 2002
Decision to Support Palestinians despite Antisemitic Attacks
Sponsoring Terrorists Continues
Statement by Ilka Schröder, independent member of the parliamentary group UEL/NGL (which holds a directly opposed opinion in its majority) on the decision taken by the European Parliament against the recommendation of its Budget Control Committee to continue financing the Palestinian Authority with another € 15 million:
There has been hard evidence for the use of EU funding to sponsor terrorists for several months. The European Parliament does not seem to care: blindfolding themselves is the approach followed by the majority of members of Parliament.
