In a fascinating article on the Public Service Europe Website, Jason Edlestein, Communications Director at NGO Monitor exposes how the EU is abusing Israeli democracy for its own ends. He writes that:

"Through non-governmental organisations, the EU immorally manipulates the public debate and policy considerations regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict - claims research group"

UKIP ally condemns death sentence for Palestinian who sold property to Jews

From the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group website,

On April 25, Fiorello Provera from the European Parliament's EFD group and Vice Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee condemned the sentencing to death of former Palestinian intelligence official Muhammad Abu Shahala on the grounds of selling a house in the West Bank town of Hebron to Jewish residents.

Mr. Provera said: "The sentence of Mr. Abu Shahala should be overturned, and the European Union should add its full weight to securing his release, since its own Charter of Fundamental Rights includes an absolute ban on the death penalty. The Palestinian Authority is demonstrating a total disregard for basic human rights principles, even though it is one of the largest recipients of EU aid".

I expect the President of the European Parliament Martin Schultz to vigorously condemn this ruling with the same indignation expressed on behalf of the House in the case of Uladzislau Kavalyou, and I urge the Palestinian authority to introduce a moratorium on executions".

It is reported that Mr. Abu Shahala confessed following torture sessions at the hands of his captors. Under the framework of the Palestinian Authority's legal system, selling land to Jews is considered a capital offense. The death sentence will only be carried out once Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signs the death warrant. In response to Mr. Abu Shahala's sentencing, a number of Hebron residents have written a letter urging high-ranking officials such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to take action.

More on How the EU fuels Neo-Nazism

In our last blog we talked about how the EU is directly funding a neo-Nazi youth movement.

And his latest blog post, UKIP's Michael Heaver (former Chairman of the youth wing) identifies another way in  which the EU has been helping the far right cause. This is of obvious concern to the Jewish community and other ethnic minority groups.

Michael argues that Greece is a prime example of where failing EU policies have led the electorate to turn to extremist political parties in order- ironically-  to salvage their democracy.

EU Funding Neo-Nazis

In recent months, the EU has not only been found to be funding extremist Islamic organisations but also worrying groups of quite a different kind.

The Union of Lithuanian Nationalist Youth (ULNY), a Lithuanian neo-Nazi youth group has been adopted onto a council which receives European Union funding.

Not only will the group benefit from EU funding by being part of the Lithuanian Council of Youth Organisations but it will also benefit from respect and credibility of being part of a grouping which is officially recognised and sponsered by the EU.
