Let's Put a Cork in This Money Bottle.

Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea

Submitted by maura collins (Canada), Dec 20, 2007 at 09:09

Just what is it that makes a group of people, in this case ‘Palestinians', believe the world owes them a welfare check? From the UN to the EU, they trip over themselves flinging money at this gang of doubtful starters, yet what is there to show for such a grotesque amount of cash that has become their manna from heaven to them?

Dead Israelis via suicide bombers, broken infrastructure, raw sewage on the streets, multiple children they cannot afford to feed or educate, endless indoctrination on that savage ‘religion of peace, women treated as 3rd class pack animals, and mothers insane enough to kiss the kids goodbye as they head to the nearest bus to "murder my Jew"?

And for this we toss cash at them so that they may turn right around and do it all over again: on our dime. Who is the demented one here, us for giving, (bribing) or them for accepting such a depraved way of life? Abbas and company figured this out long ago, yet we, the West, slide merrily along from day to day with nary a thought in our empty head other than to find a peaceful solution for this, in the most corrupt corner of the world.

As the shelling continues with rockets into Northern Israel, and people are injured and terrified, where is the PM of Israel, Mr. Olmert to be found? Well he's having lunch with the country's ‘best friend', Mr. Abbas, or muttering some meaningless words in the Knesset pertaining to the new non smoking act, of course. Either that or he's defending himself against multiple corruptions charges against him. Not only does he not demand the same amount of $$$ from the UN & EU, he goes one better and kicks in cash from the weary taxpayers of his own country. All this, and still the area Arabs continue to maim and murder Jews like there is no tomorrow. God help you, and Shalom Israel.
