ISRAEL = TASTE THE FRESH AIR OF FREEDOM FOR PALESTINIANS AND A SEPARATE NATION
“Haaretz obtains full document of EU-proposed sanctions against Israel” by Barak Ravid Nov. 17, 2014
“The fact is that there is an agreement among all 28 member countries of the European Union to discuss measures against Israel, and that is what should worry the government in Jerusalem and the Israeli public. This paper will be handed over to the political echelon in Europe, which will decide which actions, if at all, to take.” — EU Diplomats
EU diplomats say claims of Israeli Foreign Ministry are BOGUS — particularly its director, Christian Berger. = “A large group of member states pushed for this move after the failure of the talks between Israel and the Palestinians, and after the war in Gaza.” — EU diplomats
EU-Document = Sanctions against Israel — measures against European-Israeli companies that work in settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem — Aimed at Israeli businesses that work with European companies on projects in the settlements — Dutch water company Vitens in collaboration with Israel’s water company, Mekorot.
Dutch government recommended = Royal Haskoning company reconsider a Israeli sewage purification plant in East Jerusalem.
The EU’s Political and Security Committee = Ambassadors of 28 EU member states –drafted the response measures to acts by the Israeli government damaging the two-state solution. — Stop Construction projects over the Green Line. — Endangers establishment of a Palestinian state with territorial contiguity with East Jerusalem as capital. = Senior European diplomats from 28 Nations mandated the document — “This is a sign that a great deal of anger and frustration exist in the member states. In recent months European foreign ministers…spoke in the most critical way against the policies of Netanyahu’s government.”
ISRAELI TWISTS AND LIES: “Several states, including some that are considered great friends of Israel, are the ones who conceived the move and are now hiding behind the EU’s foreign service so that it can act as the bad cop.” — The Israeli Foreign Ministry knows very well which countries are behind this move, but finds it convenient to accuse the EU’s foreign service.
FURTHER MEASURES AGAINST ISRAEL:
Sanctions include EU reassess “EU funding or capacity-building activities indirectly helping to perpetuate the status quo of occupation” to make sure that the funds are not used indirectly to perpetuate the Israeli occupation of the West Bank.
More “support” of unilateral Palestinian actions such as “applications to international organizations” or requests for recognition.
Proposes additional European countries recognize a Palestinian state — as Sweden did recently.
EU could dissuade Palestinians from gaining support from international organizations. – NETANYAHU’S GREATEST FEAR!
“no contact policy with settler organizations/Refuse to engage with settlers, including public figures and those publicly rejecting the two-state solution.”
Boycott senior Israeli ministers = Naftali Bennett + Uri Ariel of Habayit Hayehudi + Many Knesset Likud members + President Reuven Rivlin = OPPOSED to establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Reduce distribution of EU funds to joint projects with Israel “in line with the ‘more for more, less for less’ policy.”
Incentives for greater European investments in Israeli peace process. = All 28 EU member, “to openly support Israeli leaders taking hard decisions and help recreating a positive dynamic, including in relations with the Palestinians.”

RE/MAX — “Why is a Colorado firm selling apartments in Israel’s illegal settlements?” by Benjamin Norton Nov 13, 2014
Denver-based RE/MAX is profiting since 1995 from Israel’s relentless theft of Palestinian land. RE/MAX sells and rents houses and apartments in colonies reserved exclusively for Jews in the occupied West Bank including East Jerusalem — coordinated in an office that the Israeli subsidiary of RE/MAX runs in a major settlement in the West Bank and sells into many settlement colonies. UN report says RE/MAX company in the US could be “held accountable” for assisting Israel’s crimes. Such settlements violate the Fourth Geneva Convention, which forbids an occupying power from transfering its civilian population into a territory that it occupies. Prospective settlers were recently offered what RE/MAX describes as “a beautiful old Arab house” in the Abu Tor neighborhood for $1.8 million.
