EU Threatens Israel – Again – Over J’lem Housing

The EU said Monday it was seeking Israeli clarification of reports it planned to build another 1,000 homes in Jerusalem, threatening once again to sever ties with the Jewish state if it failed to follow the bloc’s plan for the Middle East, AFP reports Monday.


If the reports are confirmed, “it will call once again into serious question Israel’s commitment to a negotiated solution with the Palestinians,”
a spokeswoman for EU foreign affairs head Catherine Ashton said.


The European Union could only “condemn such an ill-judged and ill-timed decision” if the plans went ahead, spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said. “We stress that the future development of relations between the EU and Israel will depend on (its) engagement towards a lasting peace based on a two-state solution.”
