Europe Waking Up to Hamas Terrorist Vows

 

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.

  1. Yes, now the damage has been done’ the EU want to apologise…… Too little too late. And we hope that your countries Never have to go thru what Israel goes thru on a DAILY basis

  2. Hopefully it will be the start of their eyes opening up to the truth and reality!!

  3. GOD WILL COME DOWN +LEASE THE FIRE HORSE TO BURN ALL YOU EVIL PIGS FOREVER IN HELL…
    GOD BLESS ISRAEL
    GOD LOVES ISRAEL.
    GOD WILL PROTECT ISRAEL+HIS CHILDREN….

  4. Just Believe to Elohim, He will fight for you Israel. Keep calm, please!

  5. David Cohen says:

    If I’m reading this article correctly, it is only 20 member’s of Parliament of 15 different Countries. Hardly a rousing show of support.

  6. Thomas Lundh says:

    It’s not an official EU declaration, but a declaration by some individual European politicians. Probably mostly MP:s who were already pro-israeli before the kidnappings. But maybe more and more individuals will begin to understand the truth.

  7. Ben II says:

    NO they aren’t. Europe is in bed w those Islamic terrorists.

  8. Not too late! Their support is welcome! They are just not accustomed to helping Jews

  9. These nazis, too little, too late. Forget EU forever!

  10. Ronny Mol says:

    What people still do NOT get it? Christian Europe is being out birthed by Muslims. France will be the first to go. Question is what will happen to the Vatican when Italy becomes a majority Muslim? Will it pay double taxes to the Muslims or will it be destroyed. I would like to know, how much does the Vatican pay for its Churches in Muslim lands, so they do NOT destroy it?

  11. The U.K government does not 'get it'. On the BBC news yesterday, subtle (or maybe not so subtle) references about the boys being 'Settlers'. That there was 'wall to wall coverage of the missing boys in Israel, however….' Then a video clip to show the 'undisputed fact' that 2 Palestinian boys were
    shot and killed a short while ago…'not, as Israel stated, in a riot'. And there was 'no wall to wall coverage of this killing'. Followed by the 'excuse' that Bibi needed (i.e. the kidnapping) to arrest, bomb etc., Hamas individuals. So what is the BBC's message? Just like everywhere else: It's Israel's fault. Israel is the demon in everything. I am waiting to hear that Israel is responsible for the Issis conquest in Iraq. I am sure it won't be long before someone spouts that. Israel is alone – and apart from a few friends, Australia and Canada, they have to stand up to the world.

  12. The BBC in its news report on the 'missing' (not kidnapped!) boys, showed that it is impossible for them to imagine wanting to leave no stone unturned to find the boys and bring the thugs who took them, to justice. Because they do not have that sense of family that Israel and Jews in general have, they believe that it must be an 'excuse' for the military to capture Hamas terrorists.
