Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea

Submitted by Ynnatchkah (United States), Dec 29, 2007 at 21:59

When reading Mr. Joel Bainerman's article, many-many concerns came into my mind. After having lived in Israel and dealt with the immigration "machine" called Sochnut, differently from what I expected, public employees there, with some exceptions, were lazy, treating you with disdain, making mockery on your necessity for imperative documentation, etc…So

(1) Indeed if the US is to stop the monetary feeding, public jobs will be in danger and thus responsibility will be demanded, making the immigration machine more efficient.

(2) I have noted that whenever and wherever the flow of cash in big enough to spoil an entire population, such as in the US, for example at first, where the credit machine has been sick, there is an increase of spoiled citizens, with a sentiment of guilt towards the "less fortunate- abroad or local "refugees from Islamic lands" and Illegal, who in the future will guarantee these spoiled ones in power. And, with a personality based upon extreme capitalism, which make less spiritual and this more consumers, this new class of citizens "The Liberals" will also be increased by those incompetents who unable to survive in the competitive market, have now "jobs" b/c the economy in its bubble, not grow, requires them to work as a potential consumer.

Needless to say that this incompetent ones are hunger to buy, selling themselves to the Arab world for cash, to supply their necessities. So again, a lot of money brings this social problem.

Well, the exuberant flow of cash in Israel has really increased the liberal and cheap leftist class, responsible for most of the civil tragedies. Despite yet of so many denounces about the real face of Islamists, these "Jewish" liberals keep "up" the "good job. Therefore, In fact if the US stops "spoiling" Israel then this class tends to vanish. Note I'm attacking liberals and false leftists, not true and loyal leftists.

When people in Israel used to be less "rich" liberals were not harmful as such- remember?

(3)Putting aside these consequences, Joel Bainerman wrote this article in 1995 when the situation was better.

(4) The US spends more when giving to Islamic nations that when giving to Israel. These muslims use this cash not for social issues but to accumulate power to destroy Israel. So not only Israel will have fewer assets to fight against Islamists, but also these Islamists will have more assets to destroy Israel.

(5) There is a huge boycott against Israel and most of the American Jewry are more concerned about their situation in the US today, rather than priming for helping Israel- which is expected when not others but YOUR house is on fire.

(6) Many Jews got deluded when knowing that their donation where not going to where exactly was promised. I know a couple of cases, so the chance of donating to organizations decreases and by proxy the flow of cash to Israel.

So my big question is:

In simple terms, how you balance the above (3) - (4) - (5) - (6), without harming Israel?

Where is the maximum point of efficiency in this curve whose shape depends on so many factors?

How you maximize the process without compromising for sure the social future liability?

Thanks
