A party with members in Israel’s government has just endorsed a plan to force Palestinians out of their homeland.
A prominent Holocaust scholar previously called the plan potentially genocidal and likened the values of its chief proponent to those of the Nazi SS.
Yet the European Union, which claims a moral mission to combat extremism, racism and xenophobia, is refusing to condemn it.
The National Union faction, which has members in Israel’s parliament as part of the Jewish Home party, approved the plan at a conference this week.
It calls for annexing the occupied West Bank into a Greater Israel and effectively forcing Palestinians out of their homeland under threat of violence if they refuse Israel’s terms.
