With the votes of the left-wing parties, the European Parliament voted for the continued financing of anti-Semitic schoolbooks with 20 million euros
EU funds anti-Semitic books in Palestine with 20 million euros.
The European Union is supporting the school system in Palestinian areas in Israel with several million euros, including for books. Now a study shows that the books are strongly anti-Semitic. Nevertheless, the European Parliament decided that this program will continue.
Jews are portrayed as the enemy
According to the revealing report of the European Commission, the Palestinian children are trained to be activists. In many places, the Jews are portrayed as the enemy. As Bild reports, the commission put the continuation of the program to a vote in the European Parliament— which voted in favor!
Red-Green-Left always the first
From the German point of view, it was the deputies of SPD, the Greens, and the Left Party mainly responsible for the voting result. The Union [CDU and CSU] and the FDP voted unanimously against a continuation, the AfD [Alternative for Germany], for the most part, as well. Incomprehensible when you consider how quickly the Red-Green-Left bloc in German politics always warns mantra-like about “anti-Semitism” at every sign of patriotism.
Alternative peace project rejected
The amount involved is not insignificant: Just for the current legislative period of five years, €20 million in taxpayer money is allotted for the anti-Semitic school books. Especially scandalous is that they already had an alternative plan for the money. With a negative vote result, the money would have flowed to organizations in the Palestinian area that demonstrably promote peace. How this Red-Green-Left could refuse it is something their deputies have to explain to the voters.
