European lawmakers are discovering to their sorrow that their support for the Hamas terror leadership has brought immediate, tragic results.
Only 24 hours after a European Union delegation visited Gaza (last Wednesday) to meet with members of the new Palestinian Authority unity government, Hamas fulfilled its charter vow to wreak murder and mayham on Israeli civilians at the first opportunity.
Hamas operatives in Judea kidnapped three teenage boys traveling home for the Sabbath from a Gush Etzion yeshiva in an area that had nothing to do with the Palestinian Authority unity government.
Now parliamentarians from some 15 different European nations have signed a joint declaration to condemn the kidnapping of the three boys, two of whom are only 16, and one age 19, by Hamas terrorists last week.
More than 20 members of parliament (MP)s signed the declaration while gathered for the Israel Allies European Summit held from Saturday to Monday in Budapest, Hungary.
“We support Israel’s right to defend its citizens from acts of war and terror, as is the duty of every sovereign nation,” reads the declaration. “We condemn in the strongest terms the recent kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers and demand that the Palestinian Authority actively assist in securing their safe return.”
Yesh Atid MK Dov Lipman attended the gathering, along with Tourism Minister MK Uzi Landau (Yisrael Beytenu), MK Yaakov Margi (Shas) and MK Gila Gamliel (Likud).
The Israeli delegation also assisted with drafting the resolution. “We described the sad and worried mood in Israel to the members of parliament and they drafted this declaration without hesitation,” he said.
