Hungary vetoes EU condemnation of US policy on Israel

November 23rd, 2019

A neoconservative pundit welcomes Hungary’s preliminary veto of an EU declaration condemning a recent statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, which recognised the Jewish settlements in the West Bank as legal.

On Neokohn, László Seres lambasts the European Union’s ‘anti-Israeli’ stance in general and its criticism of the new US Middle East policy in particular. The EU transfers an annual 370 million Euros to the Palestinian Authority and Gaza without caring about how that money is used, he complains, adding that some of that aid reaches Israel in the form of rocket attacks on Israeli towns across the border. Seres disagrees with Hungary’s opposition to a planned annual EU rule of law supervision in the member countries, but this time, he concludes, the Hungarian veto was justified.
