The Palestinian Authority is working to establish 16 schools at strategic locations near Israeli communities in the Jerusalem area with European Union funding.
Over the weekend, the Committee for Combating Settlements, under the auspices of the PLO and the PA and with the direction of its new director Moaid Shaban, set up a permanent structure to serve as a school in Ein Samia near the Israeli community of Kochav Hashahar. Up until recently, tents and shacks owned by Bedouin squatters inhabited the place.
Sources in the PA say that the locations of the buildings planned for construction are not accidental and are intended to prevent the establishment of Israeli communities.
Of course these PA buildings are not intended for educational purposes. Why would we believe otherwise?
