Jewish leader blasts EU’s ‘discriminatory’ policies

JTA — European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor told European Union leaders that moves to label goods from the West Bank without labeling Hezbollah a terrorist group is “discriminatory.”

In a letter sent to the leaders of EU member states, Kantor said the EU “appears to be singling out one disputed territory of the world for special treatment, whereas the European Union has no similar policies for the other tens of territories that are the subject of international disputes.”

...Kantor wrote that the labeling of goods originating in the West Bank is made worse by the comparative lack of traction on the issue of adding Hezbollah to the EU list of terrorist organizations.

“While the European Union’s oft-stated goal is to achieve peace and security in the Middle East, these words will remain hollow if an organization with a proven and indisputable record of murder and terrorism in Europe and around the world, and whose goal is to destroy the Jewish State, is allowed to act freely, recruit and raise funds unimpeded on the European continent,” he wrote....

1. As a former Alaskan, I know the pain of being represented by a febrile idiot

 

My sympathies to the men and women represented by the European Jewish congress.
