Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Censorship "De Telegraaf" [google translation]

Right-wing Dutch national newspaper refused my comment on the I-P issue. A politician from the far-right Christian Conservative party (CU) requested less funding for the Palestinian Authority. Joël Voordewind accused the PA of using funds to sponsor terror against Israel.

In my comment, I wanted to place Voordewind's bias in some perspective to the 95% of posts who agreed with him. The moderator notified me my comment was refused! This is a novelty for me.

Joël Voorewind talks about prayer for peace in Jerusalem and the bond of Christians with Israel. There is yet hope as many commenters agree with him. Voordewind speaks the language of the occupier, Avigdor Liberman and Bibi Netanyahu who are proponents of a Palestinian state in Jordan. Inside the PA there is corruption, that's a fact. The accusation of MP Voordewind (CU) is dated from the Arafat period. Europe and the US spread funds through the World Bank: "Other income is freed to secure the salaries of the Al-Aksa Martyrs and other militants."

De Telegraaf has no problem with speeches by Geert Wilders in Tel Aviv calling for the transfer of Palestinians to Jordan.

"Financial Aid Goes to Palestinian Terrorists"

THE HAGUE (Dutch News) Oct. 12, 2013 - Questions will be raised in parliament over whether EU subsidies to the Palestine Authority go to terrorists.

Yossi Dagan, vice-chairman of the West Bank Regional Council said 40 percent of the EU subsidies to the Palestine Authority is spent on salaries of convicted Palestine terrorists. He told a meeting of MPs that these terrorists each received 2,000 euros a month.

Dagan and his compatriate Shay Attias who teaches public diplomacy in Israel, spoke to the group on the invitation of the small Christian party SGP.
