A special kind of 'aid' from the EU: Potassium nitrate

I can't wait to hear how this happened. The IDF announced today that packages of 'sugar' provided by the EU for the 'Palestinians' in Judea and Samaria contained potassium nitrate. Potassium nitrate is used in making explosives and is a 'banned substance' in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
The IDF and Shin Bet uncovered 6.5 tons of potassium nitrate hidden in sacks that were disguised as aid from the European Union, the army announced on Saturday.

Security forces discovered the stash in the cargo of a Palestinian truck at a West Bank checkpoint earlier in December. According to the IDF, the material, hidden in sugar sacks, was planned to be used by terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

"Potassium Nitrate is a banned substance in the Gaza Strip and the Judea and Samaria region due to its use by terrorists for the manufacturing of explosives and Kassam rockets," the IDF spokesperson wrote in a statement.

"This is another example of how the terror organizations exploit the humanitarian aid that is delivered to the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip with Israel's approval," the statement read.
Was the EU in on this? Or did the 'Palestinians' somehow do it themselves?

Its a good question... but since the Israel government also arms the "good" terrorists led by Abu Mazen, it is hardly in a position to complain about EU treachery.

Blessed that checkpoint (and all the others!)

I suppose this is the first time they've really checked the EU food aid programme...

And hey presto...they find bomb making material. There's more than a possibility that EU sympathisers have handed over the potassium nitrate. (most EU countries support the Islamonazis)

Thank G-d for those soldiers who diligently guard those checkpoints; like my Handassa Kravit daughter, who guards the checkpoints at the juncture of Shechem-Jenin-Ramallah...may Hashem protect her, and all the brave soldiers in the IDF.
