Europe hands over Palestinian aid

BBC New reported The European Union has handed over 64m euros (£44m) in aid to help the poorest Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
You can always count on Europe to back down and weasel out.
But it said that future aid depended on the incoming Hamas government showing a commitment to work for peace, saying the group was "at a crossroads".
And if they don't they will get a very cross letter with the next bag of cash.
The EU is due to give another 60m euros to cover official salaries and energy expenses for the Palestinian Authority.
