The European Union Caves

Now there's a Dog Bites Man headline for you. The European Union ponied up one hundred twenty million euros, about US$142,000,000, for emergency aid to the Palestinian Authority. Now that the PA has elected Hamas to lead their government, the EU wasn't quite sure what to do with their murderous mascots. That's why it took them, oh, (click, clickety) almost one month to cough up the danegeld. You've just gotta wonder to what extent the Continent's Muslim minority has slipped a ring through the nose of the European governments.
It is the EU's first financial aid to the PA since the January election.

However, the organisation insisted the package was "independent from any future decisions on support for the incoming Palestinian Authority".

The next one and the next one probably will be, too.
