The EU continues not to realize that by aiding the PA they are feeding the jihad that is biting them. From Israel National News, with thanks to Twostellas:
Arab attacks continue and the IDF carries out arrest operations of wanted terrorists almost nightly as Egypt and the European Union announce they will be providing ammunition and training to the PA….
Throughout Judea and Samaria, IDF troops arrested 20 wanted terrorists during the night, as well.
In the Balata slums of Shechem, terrorists opened fire at soldiers. There were no injuries and soldiers returned fire.
Gunfire was reported by an Israeli motorist near the Jewish town of Kiryat Arba. The driver reported shots fired in his direction at the Okfim Junction to the IDF, which arrived at the scene and launched a search for the shooter.
Following the government-ordered opening of the Erez crossing to enable Israeli Arabs to visit relatives in Gaza, the bag of an Israeli Arab citizen exploded as he was crossing from Gaza into mainland Israel. No injury or damage was reported in the incident, which was the result of American pressure to open the Gaza crossings despite promises to Israeli citizens that the Disengagement would mean separation from Gaza’s hostile Arab population….
The Palestinian Authority security forces, many of whom either moonlight as members of various terror organizations or were hired directly from their ranks as part of negotiations between the groups and the ruling Fatah militia, will be receiving new ammunition over the next few days, including rifle bullets — paid for by the United States and delivered from Egypt with the approval of PM Sharon’s cabinet.
Last week, the cabinet also approved the deployment of European Union (EU) personnel to oversee the border between Gaza and Egypt at Rafiach.
And just in case the lack of PA confrontation with terror groups operating in Gaza has been due to lack of snipers, the European Union has announced the launching of a three-year program to train the Palestinian Authority’s quasi-army, saying that the PA needs a “credible police force.”
