This Does a Heart Good

The PA is facing many problems. There is rampant lawlessness a lot of it perpetrating by the security forces of the PA. Terrorists have free reign and attack Israel with Kassam rockets and suicide bombers. Now they have apparently run out of money. Lo and behold, the European Union turned them down!! Will wonders never cease. There's hope for the world! PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is going around Arab countries with the old tin cup out. Good luck fellows. Since the Arab countries only sent in a third of what was pledged last year, it'll be tough getting them to part with anymore of the green. Read the Jerusalem Post article.

I'm all for helping people out but when aid from the US and the EU is continually misspent and misappropriated, a line has to be drawn. Hopefully, the EU's refusal to help out this time means they are serious in promising a cut in aid if Hamas wins in the upcoming elections.

"There's hope for the world!"



I am sure the Iranian President will spare a dime or two. :-(

felis,

Maybe. It's just another drama, chaos, or power play.

It is a power play and chaos at the same time.
People living there (Palestinians) just lost all perspective and think the whole world revolves around them.
I expected exactly this.
The only sensible solution would be moving of all Palestinians it Jordan and returning West Bank and Gaza to Israel.
Similar population movement (just on a much, much biggre scale) was done after WWII between Soviet Union, Poland and Germany.
Instead of wasting money on Qasam rockets for PA the UN, EU and US should start spending money on Jordan to prepare their entire infustructure for the new arrivals.
This was meant to be home for Arab Palestinians anyway.
If the bleeding heart brigade starts talking about losing homes etc, they must be told that between 1945-50 over 20 million people had to drop everything and move into new places.
It was possible then it is possible now.

felis,

Sensible solution and one that was envisioned with the Balfour Declaration.
