Israel demolishes EU funded Arab buildings in Jerusalem…the EU is irate, Israel doesn’t care

Jerusalem Belt Forum welcomes enforcement in strategic area, but warns it isn’t enough to counter phenomena of EU-backed land grabs.

The IDF Civil Administration on Monday morning dismantled and seized seven portable structures and other building parts that had not yet been assembled in E1, a strategic corridor connecting Jerusalem with Ma’ale Adumim to the east.

The structures were set up illegally without permits apparently in the last several days, in the latest Arab land grab attempt in the key region.

Jerusalem Belt Forum praised the law enforcement, saying, “we welcome the (Civil) Administration for its enforcement activity this morning.”

“At the same time, we are witnesses in recent days to a phenomenon in which the Palestinians and the European Union show contempt for the law and rush to build anew at the site of evacuated structures,” said the Forum.

“We call on the Civil Administration not to make do with cosmetic activities, but rather to speed up law enforcement in a massive way against the hundreds of houses built illegally throughout the area.”

The statement refers to the widespread illegal Arab construction to the east of Jerusalem in Area C, regions of Judea and Samaria designated as being under full Israeli control
