Nathan A. Sales, coordinator of the US State Department for terrorism, revealed the total amount of money Iran is spending to finance anti-Israel terrorism: Iran provides 700 million dollars a year to Hezbollah and an additional 100 million are sent to various Palestinian terrorist groups. The Iranian regime spends almost a billion dollars a year just to support terrorism. Islamic Jihad is the first historic group of Palestinian Islamism and is the most closely linked to Iran. It was born in 1979 from a split of Palestinian Arab students hosted in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Bad European timing, meanwhile. While the Israelis were descending into the shelters, the Court of Justice of the European Union marked Israeli products from Judea, Samaria and the Golan – for the first time – with a special label Israel thus becomes the first and only state whose goods from disputed territories are marked with a special wording.
The European Union does not designate the Turkish oil produced in the northern part of Cyprus, which is under occupation, nor the Moroccan fish that comes from the Western Sahara nor the Chinese products from Tibet.
Since 2005, after Israel evacuated its Gush Katif settlements from Gaza, the Strip has been occupied by Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, sending rockets to Jewish houses and using its population as a human shield.
But this occupation does not seem to exist for Europeans, too busy boycotting the only Jewish State in the world where even the newborns at the Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon had to “run” for shelters. I feel ashamed for my antisemithic Europe.
