In one of the funnier stories so far this year, the Euro-peon Union, desperate to aid the Palestinian subhumans while at the same time looking like they despise the Hamas scumbags who run the Palestinian government, is sending money directly to Palestinians - in an action which is costing them $4 million in just a few months. Who is making the money? The bank doing the tranfers.
Never let is be said that Euro-peons were smart.
EU's" attempt to avoid Hamas costs £2m in bank charges
More than €3m (£2m) of EU aid for Palestinians was spent on bank charges last year in an effort to bypass the Hamas-run government, Oxfam said yesterday. The money was spent between August and December under the temporary international mechanism, a system run by the European commission that delivers directly to Palestinians and avoids supporting the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority.Oxfam described the mechanism as an "aid fiasco" and said it should be scrapped. But the EC said it was the "most direct and most efficient" means of delivery.
In those five months, about €110m was delivered directly into the bank accounts of 140,000 Palestinians and another €40m was spent on supplying fuel. The money was intended to tackle a growing economic crisis brought about in large part by the decision of Israel to freeze $60m (£30m) of monthly tax revenues it usually passes to the Palestinians.
Oxfam said the money was passed through the HSBC bank every month at a charge of €8 for each transfer.
"European states are wasting millions of euros of aid to Palestine through this bureaucratic scheme," said Barbara Stocking, director of Oxfam. "Our aid is being delivered through a complex mechanism that is causing irreparable damage to essential services for Palestinian people." She said direct funding to the Palestinian Authority should be restarted.
Of course, Oxfam is a Marxist organization out to give aid directly to terrorists.
This is what happens when you kiss Palestinian ass, Europe.
