Holland paid terrorists who murdered Israeli teen girl

The Jerusalem Post says it's been discovered that the Dutch government gave money to terrorists behind the murder of an Israeli teenage girl:
The Netherlands paid part of the salaries of two terrorists involved in killing 17-year-old Rina Shnerb last year, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok and Development Minister Sigrid Kaag admitted to parliament on Tuesday.

The killers are members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a designated terrorist group in the EU, and employees of the Palestinian Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC), to which the Dutch representative in Ramallah pledged nearly $20 million in 2013-2021.

Their salaries were paid in part by Dutch funds covering UAWC overhead costs, though they were not directly involved in the land and water management program sponsored by the Netherlands. They also received accreditation, identifying themselves as “employees of a partner organization of the Dutch representation,” in Ramallah a letter from the ministers said.

The Netherlands is suspending its donations to UAWC indefinitely, pending an investigation.
The Dutch government owes a serious apology for the harm they caused. It's a grave example of a European government enabling terrorism, and what they did has also enabled terrorists to act within their own countries. Funding to terrorists has to cease.
