I would say Fuck You to the EU.....

Typical EU - singling out Israel for special attention...
The European Parliament foreign affairs committee has approved increased participation by Israel in EU programmes as part of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) but linked it to respect for the commitments given by Israel at the Annapolis Mideast summit.

"Companies and organisations based in the settlements in the occupied territories must not be eligible to take part," the MEPs said in resolution adopted last week.
The resolution was drafted by Belgian Socialist MEP VĂ©ronique De Keyser.
MEPs called on the European Commission and Member States to verify that any participation by Israeli entities in EU programmes "complies with EU law and policies."

"Measures should be taken to prevent participation in these programmes by Israeli companies and organisations based in the settlements, by tightening up checks on Israeli products imported into the EU under preferential trade rules," the resolution says.

It adds: "Infringement proceedings should be started if products from the occupied Palestinian territories bearing Israeli labels are exported to the Union."
