Erdan: EU directive derails Palestinian incentive to talks

July 17, 2013 09:21

Civil Defense Minister Gilad Erdan on Wednesday said the EU directive banning grant to Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem was a stab to efforts to return to peace talks.

In an interview with Israel Radio, Erdan said the EU decision provides the Palestinians with incentive not to come to the negotiating table with Israel.

Erdan added that the possible determining factor behind the guideline could be the will to please the growing Muslim minority in Europe from a political standpoint.
