BETTER THAN NOTHING, BUT NOT BY MUCH: The EU’s “suspension” of funding to the Palestinian Authority, because of the PA’s diversion of that money to support terrorist acts, is likely to last only until June 19 according to this report.

What possible assurance could the EU receive by then that its money isn’t supporting terrorism? Especially in light of this poll indicating that Palestinians don’t want independence but the elimination of Israel?

UPDATE: On the good news side, the EU is reportedly expanding its list of terror groups to include Hezbollah, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). These groups are subject to asset freezes, etc.
