EDUCATIONAL AFFAIRS: Children are taught that Israel is the enemy, that terrorists are martyrs, and that their actions are to be emulated.
A cross-party group of Members of the European Parliament have called upon the commission to stop funding Palestinian education until antisemitism is purged from textbooks.
Borrell added that he is using all of the EU’s “diplomatic capacities in order to put pressure for that not to happen.”
The move comes at a time when Germany and the EU are reconsidering relations with China in the face of increased investment in critical sectors by Chinese state-owned enterprises.
Parliamentarians "insisted that the Commission should thoroughly verify the use of Union funds by third party entities to ensure no funds are allocated to any cause or form of terrorism."
MEP Charlie Weimers, of the European Conservatives and Reformists group, pointed out that the European Parliament passed a resolution in 2018 that called for the safe return of Israelis.
The MEP's office is currently working on drafting the resolution.
