Confirmed: PA paid terrorists with EU money

February 9, 2004 23:39 by

The (Hebrew) site News First Class is the first to relay this:

The German newspaper Berlin Morgenpost reported Sunday on the initial results of the European Commission’s Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) investigation into suspicions that $1.1 billion in EU aid to the Palestinians was used in an illegal manner.

The initial report indicates that Arafat transferred much of the European aid money to various Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade terror groups and to Palestinian officials.

There has been a great deal of speculation and some media reports regarding this, but this is the first official EU confirmation of the PA spending European taxpayers’ money on arming terrorists.
