Beilin is a Trojan Horse for the EU in Israel

By: Avi Abelow

The following should be spread as far and wide as possible:

In practicallity, all support for Beilin, his ideas, his agreements and his new party is support for the European Union running Israel and Israeli policy.

Investigative reporter Yoav Yitzchak reported in the February 8th, 2002 issue of Ma'ariv
former Labor Party MK Yossi Beilin is drawing an annual salary of NIS
350,000 - NIS 400,000 from The Economic Cooperation Foundation (ECF), a
Aviv based organization that he formed with Yair Hirschfeld at the end

Yitzchak notes that the bulk of the ECF budget is covered by the
Union. In addition to the salary, ECF covers Beilin's heavy travel
expenses - including meetings with Palestinians overseas.

For all practical purposes, Yitzchak writes, the European Union is
for Beilin to negotiate with the Palestinians.
