Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea

Those graphs are indeed amazing.

The correlation between money given and homicides is mind boggling. So the more we give,the more death we get and the less we give the less death we get.

The question is what is more important? Money or people? Sadly money is more important than people in this part of the world, and as long as we maintain our present attitude, nothing will change.

In other words, the P.A asks for more money, almost knowing that it will cause more death but that is irrelevant. What we need to do and find ,is to make sure that the money goes where it is supposed to go.

How many hospitals and schools has that money built? Or rather how many more millionaires came to be?
