European Union gives "Peace Coalition" 1.7 million Euro for anti-government rally

European Union gives "Peace Coalition" 1.7 million Euro for anti-government
rally

Aaron Lerner Date: 5 April 2002

Arutz 7 radio commentator Adir Zik revealed this morning that he has
evidence that the European Union is contributing 1.7 million Euro (around
$1.5 million) to Yossi Beilin's "peace coalition" for their upcoming
anti-government rally.

The European Union also helps finance Yitzhak Frankenthal's "Bereaved
Families' Forum" international campaign to encourage Israeli concessions.
Frankenthal told IMRA that the campaign has a budget of hundreds of
thousands of dollars. The Bereaved Families' Forum is a group of Israeli and
Palestinian parents whose children died or blew themselves up in the course
of the conflict. They all agree Israel should make concessions.

Investigative reporter Yoav Yitzchak report in the 8 February 2002 issue of
Ma'ariv that former Labor Party MK Beilin is drawing an annual salary of NIS
350,000 - NIS 400,000 from The Economic Cooperation Foundation (ECF), a Tel
Aviv based organization that he formed with Yair Hirschfeld at the end of
1990.

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