Belgium minister Charles Michel is not interested in listening to warnings from Israel.
Israel has denied Belgian International Development Minister Charles Michel’s request to visit the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported Sunday evening.
Israel has again made it clear that European politicians who wants to visit the leadership of Hamas, will have to enter Gaza through Egypt.
Ayalon told the Belgian minister that Israel could not authorize the request, as official visits to the Strip are interpreted as giving legitimacy to Hamas. Ayalon added that any humanitarian aid that Belgium passes onto Hamas would, in the end, be embezzled by terrorists, and would not reach those in need.
In a press statement, Michel said, «It’s not normal that access to Gaza is denied to a minister whose country is funding projects there». Belgium provides humanitarian aid to Gazans via two different UN agencies.
Prior to Netanyahu’s coming to power on March 31, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana, Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store, and US Sen. John Kerry were all allowed into the area. Since then, such high-level visits have, for all intents and purposes, stopped.
The policy came to light after Irish Foreign Minister Michael Martin told a parliamentary committee that Israel had banned a visit he had hoped to make to Gaza.

There seems to be some misunderstandings in the European Union. Do they missed Geography at school, and do not know that there are two ways to enter Gaza?
One is from the Jewish state of Israel who is at war with the Radical Islamic terrorist organization Hamas. The other border crossing is from Egypt.
Since there is no present war between Hamas and Egypt, is would be logic and honest for the EU-politicians to enter into Gaza from the Rafah border crossing. If Egypt should deny your Visa-application to enter Gaza, you should ask your self the following questions:
If the Muslims who rule Egypt has closed the border with Gaza, what is the reason for such actions?
Could the Egyptian have discerned that Hamas by nature is a Fascistic movement, that needs to be contained, and not be allowed to spread into the rest of the Middle East?
When EU-politicians do not read the message, but keeps on flocking to Israel to apply for exit Visa from Israel to enter Neo-Nazi land, what are their motives?
Let me answer the last question:
The EU-politicans are bluntly trying to legitimize Hamas, and taint Israel as intolerant and inhuman.
Keep in mind than thousands of tons of International aid from Israel is passed into Gaza every week. But wisely, the Government of the Jewish state is keeping the plague of EU-politicians out.
