Where: EU House, Molesworth Street, Dublin 2

Any EU agreement with Israel should be opposed so long as Israel is an occupier of Palestinian lands and remains a serial human rights abuser and international law violator. However, this agreement in particular will see Israeli companies and institutions, many of which are complicit in the occupation, become eligible for lucrative grants. In its previous incarnation of ‘FP7′, this agreement saw around €635 million of EU taxpayers money go to Israeli entities, including arms manufacturers and companies based in illegal settlements. This, in effect, is rewarding Israel despite its obscene and illegal treatment of the Palestinian people over decades.

Incredibly, while this agreement in principle includes the new EU Guidelines that prevent any EU funding going to companies connected to the illegal settlements, there is an appendix “stating Israel does not recognise the new guidelines”. The EU must stop singling out Israel for special treatment.
