I would very much appreciate your guidance in assisting me to understand a glaring inconsistency in the EU's adherence to the basic principle of all being equal before the law, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation welcomes international participation unconditionally. No qualifications are stated for eligibility in regard to human rights, democratic government, territorial disputes and the like. Its web site states clearly"International cooperation will be an important cross-cutting priority of Horizon 2020. In addition to Horizon 2020 being FULLY OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION, targeted actions with key partner countries and regions will focus on the EU’s strategic priorities." [emphasis added]. See
The EU also publicizes that the fight against all forms of discrimination is one of its most pressing missions. It is therefore puzzling that in defiance of this stated principle and its dedication to equality before the law, the EU does in fact discriminate against one state by issuing special EU Guidelines on the eligibility of Israeli entities in the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967.
Equality before the law and non-discrimination demand that similar guidelines be issued in respect of Northern Cyprus, which is illegally occupied by Turkey, Tibet which is occupied by China, the territorial disputes between Serbia and Kosovo and even between Britain and Spain over Gibraltar as well as the many other disputed territories around the world.
And perhaps you will kindly explain why an entity in any of the Israeli villages of Gush Etzion is discriminated against, considering that these villages were founded as long ago as 1940 on property purchased legally between 1920 and 1930. Gush Etzion was destroyed by the Arab Legion even before the outbreak of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War during which the villages were illegally occupied by Jordan. In these circumstances, what possible objection can the EU raise to the re-establishment of Gush Etzion after the illegal occupation by Jordan was terminated?
It is also highly relevant to draw attention to the fact that the Oslo accords, which have not been abrogated, don't restrict the expansion of Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. Rather the issue of Jewish settlements is to be addressed in the final status negotiations under Article XXXI(5) of Oslo 2. As these accords were signed by late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin for Israel and Mahmoud Abbas for the PLO in the presence of Yassir Arafat and then-US President Bill Clinton, it is fair to ask on what grounds the EU, by presuming to declare the 1949 armistice line as a border, has appropriated the right to override the legal agreement between the parties to determine borders in final status negotiations.
Your considered response will be appreciated and will be publicized.
