Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea

Submitted by Yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Dec 22, 2007 at 16:58

The casual observer of Israeli affairs must have been stupefied for many a year. For what country is so adamant the world funds its sworn enemy? It's positively bizarre. But, as I have remarked in the past, in the Middle East truth is always in the reverse. Or, predictions made according to Western Wisdom are likely to be proven inversely related.

The graphs presented show, in a very medical way, the combined number of violent deaths, Jews and Arabs, as related to the amount of money infused. The correlation is so strong, it cannot be ignored. What the graphs do not show is that the number of Jewish deaths due to terror acts has dropped precipitously since Defensive Shield, so that practically all the deaths one sees are Arab deaths.

Now, one can accuse Israel of many things, but not of statistical blindness. These graphs show that the most expedient way to reduce Arab occupation of the Holy Land is to funnel more money into the Palestinian authority. Given the funds, Arabs will decimate themselves off much better than any military offensive Israel might pursue.

Now is this official Israeli policy? Heck no. Most Israeli politicians are wholly westernized, blind as bats and dung-eared. They misunderstand the Middle East better than anyone. But if the US and Europe insist on giving the Arabs the means to kill themselves, who are the Israelis to argue? Just as if the Prime Minister of Israel insists that Israel's security is best served by arming the islamo-fascists, who are the Europeans to argue?

In this circus of fecklessness there is one bottom line. The missing million. When the EU prepped the polls for the PA elections, a million Palestinian voters projected to be there were missing. One must be blind as a bat, and a total idiot, or have no choice, to live under Arab rule. Palestinians are fleeing Arab rule, and the better it is funded, the more will flee, leaving Israel to populate the Land with Jews.

The ways of the Lord are inscrutable, but boy, do they work.
