Europeans to ban 'settlers' from entering EU?
The European Union would like to ban Jewish (only) residents of Judea, Samaraia and 'east' Jerusalem from entering their Islamifying palace in an effort to pressure Israel to accept their national suicide plan for us. For now, they will settle for banning Jews with 'criminal' records. There's one small problem: Some of those Jews also carry European passports
While the diplomats say they are only at an early point in planning
their diplomatic "warfare," one move they are threatening to take is
imposing a travel ban on Jewish residents of Judea, Samaria and eastern
Jerusalem who have any criminal history.
"The paperwork has been done but it is frozen for now," one
official said. "It is basically a blacklist of violent settlers who have
been accused of or convicted of crimes. It would prevent them from
traveling to Europe."
Such a move would likely prevent roughly 100 to 200 people from

In Article 83 of the
agreement, it is stipulated that the agreement applies to the territory
of the state of Israel, which one official said may mean banks operating
in Judea and Samaria that the EU does not consider part of Israel could
"I'm not saying we
should stop dealing with Israeli banks, but it's an issue that has been
raised and some would say we need to look at it in more detail," said
the unnamed ambassador to Israel.
The ambassador also stated "no one is talking about imposing
trade sanctions on Israel. But there is a very high level of frustration
and there are many instruments at our disposal to make that frustration
Another senior diplomat threatened that Europe's patience is "wearing thin."
And you thought that John Kerry was obsessed with Israel....
