From The Daily Journal:
|A group claiming to belong to al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades is continuing to make specific threats against EU officials in the run up to the 25 January parliamentary elections.|
|“We don’t know if they are really from al-Aqsa, but we are taking the threat very seriously,” the head of the EU observation mission, Belgian MEP Veronique de Keyser, told EUobserver on Monday.|
|Ms. de Keyser indicated that officially, al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades as well as militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad have assured EU monitors there will be no violence surrounding the vote.|
|But she added “In each group, you have extremists who really don’t want the elections…”|
Don't you wonder what kind of life insurance premiums the EU has to pay for their monitors in Palestine during the elections? Seems like they need a ratio of 1:1 voter and monitor. Plus supervisors, of course. This is an EU operation.
Like the UN, they specialize in people + paper, lots of paper.
