“It’s not acceptable to punish the Palestinian people. We cannot say to the Palestinians: ‘it’s good being democratic and at the same time we punish you’. The EU must find a mechanism to get aid to the people…”
Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority
After the US, the European Union moves to stop payments to the Hamas-led government in Palestine.
So, yeah, it’s good to be democratic as long as you choose who they want you to choose. Simple.
