Since the Oslo Accords of 1993 over $ 25 billion in donor aid went to Palestine, one of the highest levels of per capita aid in the world. Its aim: the establishment of an independent, democratic and viable Palestinian State. 20 years later the picture is grim. A Palestinian State is further away then ever, the situation in the Palestinian territories in many respects worse than before. And only 18% of the Westbank are under Palestinian control. Our film investigates aid projects in the Palestinian territories and takes a close look at the role of the EU in the Middle East. Payer, no player? “Put an end to European hypocrisy”, demands Miguel Moratinos, former EU Special Representative for the Middle East Peace Process. Otherwise very soon „we will have missed the great opportunity of peace“.
