"Financial Aid Goes to Palestinian Terrorists"
THE HAGUE, 12/10/13 - Questions will be raised in parliament over whether EU subsidies to the Palestine Authority go to terrorists.
Yossi Dagen, vice-chairman of the West Bank Regional Council said 40 percent of the EU subsidies to the Palestine Authority is spent on salaries of convicted Palestine terrorists. He told a meeting of MPs that these terrorists each received 2,000 euros a month.
Dagan and his compatriate Shay Attias who teaches public diplomacy in Israel, spoke to the group on the invitation of the small Christian party SGP. In a reaction to Dagan's claims, Joel Voordewind, MP for the other small Christian party ChristenUnie, said he and other MPs would raise questions about financial support to terrorists.
