Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea
in response to reader comment: Voluntary financial aid to killers is evil. Western Governments taking their citizens money by force to aid these killers is evil to the nth!

Giving money to the Palestinians, and such a lot of it, is insane.Psychologists would call this situation "enabling" . Have they accounted for the already billions of dollars given to them? Will this new lot find its way into Swiss bank accounts, arms dealers, funding irresponsible procreation, funding "brainwashing" of hatred to the young? I have always thought, seeing the Palestinian Men on the streets, if they did a good day's work they would be too tired to be creating mayhem.

Possibly it is easier and more prestigiuos to be a "warrior "and ride around in jeeps flashing Kalashnikovs and throwing grenades. If something works to their advantage i.e. being a 'refugee' there will be no motivation to move forward and earn their own money by building industry and businesses. If the U.N. wants to give the money of hardworking people away, they should give it to countries like Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia to help resettle these 'refugees. The state of Israel has settled Jews fleeing from Muslim countries in North Africa and elsewhere but they haven't been the recipients of such largesse!
