Where is the UN & the EU?

Why are they not helping these citizens?
So the world can remain silent when this happens towards Jews and Israelies, but not towards Palestinians in Gaza?

They need to help people on BOTH sides!

Sderot man demands EU protection

Eyal Katorza, a French citizen who lives in Sderot, complained on Friday to the European Commission that it was not keeping its commitments to protect European citizens living abroad. Katorza said he had lost his job because of Hamas rocket attacks on the city and that his mother's store had been destroyed by a Kassam rocket.

Katorza, represented by several attorneys including Mordechai Tzivin, called on the EU and its member states to stop violating European law by stopping to transfer funds to Hamas, creating transparency regarding all funding to Palestinian and Israeli organizations, and preventing the entry into Europe of people defined by Israel as terrorists.

Tzivin charged that private individuals like himself were forced to do what the Foreign Ministry should be doing - but is not doing - to protect Israelis.

"We plan to add to the claim any Israeli who holds a European passport and who lives within terrorist-rocket range," said Attorney Tzivin. "There are about 300,000 European citizens living in Israel, and thousands of them are estimated to be living in range of terrorist rockets. The EU grants hundreds of millions of euros a year in aid to Gaza, and it is inconceivable that European citizens should be harmed by money supplied by the EU. It's time that the EU takes responsibility."

Tzivin and the European Citizens Council in Israel - a nonprofit organization representing Israelis of EU nationalities - which is also involved in this action - invited any EU passport holder living within range of Palestinian rockets to add their name to the lawsuit.

"The EU Commission must stop transferring money to Gaza," Tzivin said, "and must reimburse its citizens for their reinforcement expenses - in fulfillment of its obligations to protect its citizens."
