    The EU, in its wisdom, is penalising the very people their hypocritical rules purport to protect. Hypocritical, because Judea and Samaria are, at worst, disputed territories and, despite all the hype to the contrary, are not, according to international law, illegally occupied. Manufacturers there provide a great deal of work to local Arabs. Prior to 1967, it was a backward province illegally occupied by Jordan, barely surviving on subsitance farming using the most primitive of farming methods. After 1967, local Arabs became reasonably prosperous by their own efforts and helped by Israel, until the advent of Arafat and his henchmen. It is true that the Jews living there benefit from their own entrepreneurship but it is no less true that local Arabs benefit too. The EU seems not to care whom it hurts in pursuing its politcal agenda.
