Is the EU Changeable?

The EU steadfastedly ignores the reality of 300,000 Jewish revenants and some 200,000 Jewish residents in Jerusalem's eatern neighborhoods. That's not discrimination nor racism. It's, er, politics or whatever.

Well, maybe there's a new wind blowing, if this can be seen as a precedent:-

Polish right-wing radio station to get EU money

Radio Maryja, which has been accused of being anti-Semitic and anti-EU, may receive more than EUR 15m in EU funding for a private university, Poland's Minister of Regional Development Grazyna Gesicka said Tuesday. The project has fulfilled all the necessary criteria and will get the EU grant, Gesicka said...The money will go to expand Radio Maryja's journalism school, the Torun-based Higher School of Social and Media Culture.

but there's this, too:-

However the European Commission disputed that the funds had been approved. Commission spokeswoman Katharina von Schnurbein told the news agency AFP that the EU's strict ban on discrimination must be adhered to if Radio Maryja was going to get EU money. According to sources in the EU quoted by AFP, Radio Maryja's radical stance would reduce its chances of getting funding.
