European Union demands Israel halt demolition of illegal homes

EU calls for ‘immediate halt’ to demolition of illegal Arab apartment buildings constructed near security fence.

The European Union formally condemned the demolition of illegal Arab apartment buildings near Israel’s security barrier separating Jerusalem from Palestinian Authority-controlled areas, and demanded Israel halt its enforcement of demolition orders.

In a statement issued Monday afternoon, the European Union’s foreign affairs department said the demolitions undermine the “viability of the two-state solution”.

“Israeli authorities have proceeded with the demolition of 10 Palestinian buildings, containing some 70 apartments, in Wadi al Hummus, part of Sur Baher neighbourhood in occupied East Jerusalem. The majority of the buildings are located in Area A and B of the West Bank where, according to the Oslo Accords, all civil issues are under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority,” the EU said.

“Israel’s settlement policy, including actions taken in that context, such as forced transfers, evictions, demolitions and confiscations of homes, is illegal under international law. In line with the EU’s long-standing position, we expect the Israeli authorities to immediately halt the ongoing demolitions.”

  1. Don’t know when the EU and the rest of the world will come to their senses, there is no two state solution. This land is and always shall belong to Israel and not the Palestinians. Since when does man over rule God who gave this land to Israel. Palestine has no claim to this land, read the Bible it’s all there. Blessing to Israel and praise God all mighty. Can’t wait for the lord to set his feet upon the mount of olives and forever put an end to this for all eternity.

    If the tools in the EU as t to let the Muslims flood their countries so they can, rape there women, take over their governments, erase every sign of Christianity from Europe go ahead but mine your own business! Stay out of Israel’s business. If you want to give up part of all of one of their countries to ahead but as for Israel it is none of their business!!!

  3. I can identify with the cough Mr Baxter has been troubled with for months. My both my wife and I were plagued with that for months. But our God delivered us. Be encouraged for your listeners know our God through Christ will deliver you completely.

  4. Really Endtime? I’m behind Israel, but are you suggesting that Palestinians can’t build apartment bldgs adjacent to the seperation barrier in areas ‘A’ and ‘B’??

    I don’t believe in a two -state solution because the Palestinians can’t be trusted with the ‘high ground’ areas of the mountains that separate Judea & Samaria from Israel proper. The disaster of turning over Gaza to Hamas has proven that.

    Look, the Word clearly says that Gog & MaGog will ‘descend upon the mountains of Israel’, I.e., Judea & Samaria. In other words, there will be no ‘two state solution.’. Ever.

    So Israel, annex Judea & Samaria and offer Israeli citizenship to all Palestinians who desire to live in a Democratic & free country.

    Let’s get on with it
