Ali Abunimah discusses the complicity of the EU, which donated pre-fabricated classrooms to Palestinian schoolchildren, but did not ensure that they would be used for the purpose of education, rather than as a way for the Israeli occupation forces to pillage Palestinian property for their own profit. Thanks to media outrage the sale of the classrooms is on hold

Israel’s occupation forces in the West Bank have confiscated prefab classrooms which were donated by the European Union to be used by Palestinian children. Now the Israeli forces are now trying to sell them to the highest bidder in an auction. The story dates back to October of last year, when the Israeli forces confiscated the EU-donated caravans, which were used as classrooms by schoolchildren in the village of Izbiq in the northern part of the occupied West Bank. The school’s headmaster, Feras Daraghmeh, explained why the classrooms are so important to the children and the parents living in this village.
