”The British Embassy in Israel is helping to fund research on the enclaves created by the separation fence around Palestinian villages in the West Bank. ….The study is being carried out by the non-governmental organization Bimkom– Planners for Planning Rights.
Officials from Bimkom say that the embassy contributed about 10,000 pounds … A source in Israel’s Foreign Ministry on Monday criticized the action. "It is interference by Britain in an internal Israeli matter. How would they react in London if our embassy was to fund research on a British organization that is trying to promote an agenda that is critical of [the government]? This is not acceptable in international relations."
