1. And I say
David ,   On this planet   (01.12.12)
Israel keep building, it is our land. The Oslo accord is dead . Judea and Samaria does not belong to the so called Palestinians/Jordanians and certainly not the EU. Mr Foreign Minister Lieberman remind the EU that they are trespassing and they should mind their own business
2. "Interesting"
Anshel ,   Toronto, Canada   (01.12.12)
Europe is going broke, the Greeks are getting rid of their children, because they no longer can support them, the Italians and Spanish are broke, Hungary is not far behind them, the largest lending institution in Italy today is the "mafia" and yet the Europeans have the chutzpa to plow hundreds of millions (from where?) in a territory with minimal population and continue to allow the Palestinian leadership to skim billions of the aid money. Lunatics, or just plain ugly European anti-Semites?
3. I had this strange idea that the EU did not directly
Henry from New York ,   USA   (01.12.12)
interfere in the internal affairs of non-European nations. The area is under Israel's control by treaty and this seems like a violation of Israel's national sovereignty. My opinion of the European Union has decreased.
4. Recognize Palestine, deal with Reality
Muayyad ,   Palestine   (01.12.12)
Area C is but code language designating the balance of lands which legally belong to the emerging State of Palestine. Continued occupation and colonialism in the area amounts to a declaration of war and annulment of the 2-state solution. Neutralize the 2-state solution and you end up with a Palestine from River to Sea. That is what we want actually on the long run but are you sure holding on to the so-called Area C is a good idea given the likely blood bath paving the road to the 1-state scenario? For those people who will invoke the Bible, don't bother, as I don't believe in it. Besides, your own Torah forbids and bans the new state of Israel unless the Mossiach comes back, where is he now? You are a people blinded by racism, supremacist thought, and fanaticism.
5. This means...imminent recognition of Palestine by EU :)
Wissam ,   Palestine   (01.12.12)
Brilliant...The more you build, the more you realize you are building in virtual space...i.e. no profit or returns to you, what you are building is sitting on someone else's land! Squatters must be ejected.
6. Thank you European Union!
Great news!   (01.12.12)
on behalf of all conscientious Israelis and yes, there are still a couple of us left in this country.
7. Europe and the PLO are very much in love
Marie ,   Globalia   (01.12.12)
Hijacking their planes and blowing up their trains and Underground is the only language of love Europeans understand - they will worship at the feet of their terror masters - that is who they are. Have no illusions about them - they are hopelessly evil and wicked.
8. And i say why not...
Yaffa   (01.12.12)
Thank you Europe for your generosity. You invest, and we,Israelis will benefeat from it. It will save us a lot of money...
9. Bravo Muayyad #4
Siedjan ,   Indonesia   (01.12.12)
The only solution left is "One State Solution". Equality for all in Arab-majority state of Israel.
10. #4,5 Reality is on the ground, everything else if just talk.
Kubrikon ,   Coming to Area C.   (01.12.12)
If you have read the article you will notice that Area C has a 5.7% Arab population, and I am assuming the rest are Jewish. That is reality on the ground. Settlements and control over land work in the long run. We have proof. You have dreams of a world that never was and never will be. If you want to find Palestinian states in a future two+ state solution you can find them in Gaza or in Area A.
11. EU is a Muslim entity
Ellen ,   Israel/USA   (01.12.12)
As the number of Muslims increases in the EU they appear to be ready to do everything and anything to appease these population, not realizing that nothing but total Muslim domination is sufficient. THEY are concerned about 67 lines. Where did it ever say in Oslo that Israel would return to 67 lines? In fact UN 242 specifically and clearly calls on Israel to return to defensible borders. The responsibility is now Israel's.There should be no way foreign money can build in Area C unless Israel decided to turn a blind eye. If the Palys start building knock it down. BTW the claim that they are being stifled--who is kidding who? All the Europeans and all the talkbackers who have never even been in Area A, B or C---should be quiet. The amount of building going on is huge, the amount of infrastructure work, the impinging on Jewish communities with new structures is a daily occurrence. Any building by Israel is met at least 5 fold by the Arabs.
12. If the Europeans pursue Area C projects
Israeli 2   (01.12.12)
it is tantamount to an invasion. If Israel a;;ows it, their leaders must be eliminated.
13. Hopefully the EU will very soon be gone
DT ,   TA Israel   (01.12.12)
14. Demolish illegal E.U buildings...
Peacefor ,   Peace   (01.12.12)
E.U colonialism, model 2012 ...
15. Guarantees
Cynical   (01.12.12)
So much for European guarantees of Israeli-Palestinian agreements.
16. Is European policy crafted by naive teenagers?
Kubrikon ,   Coming to Area C.   (01.12.12)
How do they exactly expect to pursue projects in Area C without Israeli consent? There really needs to be a law that prevents European intervention in Israeli politics. They are no longer even pretending to do anything except undermine Israeli positions.
17. Not in my house, Europe !!!
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (01.12.12)
Ari Ben Canaan   (01.12.12)
We will not these goyim tell us what to do anymore!
19. This is what happens when you give up sovereignty in your
tom ,   tel aviv   (01.12.12)
own Land. Other will gladly decide for you and tell you to shut up if you protest. We've earned that in all honesty!
20. Two things become completely clear in 2012 year
Igor ,   Israel, T"A   (01.12.12)
1. "Palestinians" will be easily recognized by UNGA. 2. It will be never recognized by UNSC. And most important 3. Israel NEVER will give to palis to create the independent state. Just never. Not because does not want, but because does not may. It would be too dangerous for Israel. There is just no room for second state. Sorry, no chance. Create this state without Israel impossible. More or less everybody understand it already, but in this year it will be clear completely.
21. Muayyad #4 : Bible, Shmible
Alex ,   Israel   (01.12.12)
If "Palestine from River to Sea" is what you "want actually on the long run", then don't pretend you support two-state solution. Oh! wait a moment! you actually don't! And the so-called Area C doesn't legally belong to the so-called State of Palestine.
22. #4,#5
Sam M ,   UK   (01.12.12)
Just a few days ago an ancient stamp with a temple menorah was discovered in Israel. Thousands of such artifacts have come to light confirmimg the ancient Jewish connection to The Land of Israel. You cannot produce a single 'palestinian' artifact for the obvious reason that a palestinian homeland was an invention, a ruse to advance pan-arabism and deny the Jewish people their legitimate claim. See the following quote from The PLOs Zahir Muhsein-1977 The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism. Try wriggling out of that one!!! You are descendants of arab migrants who came to Israel drawn by the prosperity that resulted from growing Jewish communities, a prosperity your own primitive societies could not and still cannot create on your own. Your west bank cities should be self-governing with all the remaining land annexed by Israel. If you don't like it piss of to jordan, syria colonial creations with no more historical credibility than fictitious palestine. As for the euro wimps they should mind their own business.
23. Muslims have a strong lobby in Europe
Yael Schlichting ,   Raubling - Germany   (01.12.12)
Israel cannot expect that the Europeans will ever take a sober view on the ME-conflict. The behavior of parties who want to get involved into the issue is always about there own advantage. - Will Europe be able to build good relations with Islamist regimes? Europe wants to be everybody's darling. They rather shake hands with their enemies and bash their friends than vice versa. One day, they will pay the price for it! - Europe needs cheap oil from the Arabs - and the Arabs are doing massive lobby work throughout Europe and invest a lot of money in this. For Israel it will be better to explore its own shale-oil reserves as soon as it can and build ties with Asian countries, because in these countries you find no anti-semitism. Anti-Semitism is a European mental disorder. They always again and again repeat the same lies about fabulously rich Jews who are financing the illing U.S.-economy and rubish like this, while turning a blind eye on the corruption growing from unregulated and unregistered lobbyism and the massive amounts of money, Arabs are pumping into it. My proposal: Give positive incentives to the remaining Arabs to leave the Area C. Help them move to Area A and B and build their economy there.
24. what?!
gene ,   tlv   (01.12.12)
Really? So If Israel wants to build whatever it likes in occupied European territories, like Northern Ireland, Basque lands, Corsica, and Brittany it can do so without the consent of those countries?It begs the next question- why does the EU single our Israel, why does it not have the same policy in Tibet, Western Sahara, Kashmir, West New Guinea, and other disputed/occupied territories! The EU is determining the outcome of the Israeli-Arab negotiations, which make it invalid in as Quartet partner!
25. Muayyad no 4
LION OF JUDAH   (01.12.12)
There is no state called Balestine and never will be. Our bible we received from the ALMIGHTY and the land of Israel belong to BNEI ISRAIL which are the JEWS and it is written in the Quran. Jews lived in Israel thousands of years before Islam was invented. Forget about BABALESTINE or Area A,B, C, OR Z~ Go to Arabia the land of the Arabs
26. Wissam no 5
LION OF JUDAH   (01.12.12)
We are building for our children and grandchildren.Let the world and the EU to recognize Balestine, you can rest assured EU can do F$$$ ALL. Arabian squatters go back to the dessert of Arabia. Arabia for Arabs Israel,Judea & Samaria for the Jews. Judea stands for JUDAH the Jews Arabia stands for Arabs.
27. Siedjan Indonesia no 9
LION OF JUDAH   (01.12.12)
Ya Kafer read the Quran which says YA BNEI ISRAIL.Who are these nation, for sure not Indonesia,neither Arabs or Muslims.Yes you are squatters! Indonesia & Malaysia are occupied lands by your prophet under Islam sword.Give back the lands to the original nations
28. Cut off such meddling. tell EU if they ant to build a
