EU Threatens Deterioration Of Ties With Israel In Response To Construction


eu-unionThe European Union (EU) joined the United States in criticism of Israel’s plan to construct 2,610 residential units in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Givat Hamatos, threatening the deterioration of EU-Israel ties.

“[The construction] represents a further highly detrimental step that undermines prospects for a two-state solution and calls into question Israel’s commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement with the Palestinians,” the EU’s External Action Service (EEAS] said in a statement on Friday.

“We stress that the future development of relations between the EU and Israel will depend on the latter’s engagement towards a lasting peace based on a two-state solution,” the EEAS added.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest last week called the Israeli construction plan “provocative” and said it would “distance Israel from even its closest allies.”




  1. There is a 1000 year history of Europe mistreating Jews. They still can’t stomach that Jews are people.
    These Gentiles are siding with Muslims who want their utter destruction, rather than swallow their pride and side with the Jews who for all these years only built up their countries.

  2. Good. I would prefer that we had no ties whatsoever with Europe. Let them all rot in the perdition they have created for themselves.
