Reader comment on item: Fund the Palestinians? Bad Idea

Submitted by Yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Dec 23, 2007 at 16:51

And the culture decrees that if you build more hospitals, more gunshot wounds will come through the doors. If you build schools, they will be used to teach Jihad. And if you build churches they will be desecrated and used for more Jihadi indoctrination. And if you build youth-camps, they will be used to run Jihad-Scouts and suicide-bombers appreciation ralleys. If you build colleges they will be taken over by HAmas and be used for more antisemitic Jew-bashing, America-reviling propaganda.

Think I exagerate? Look at the products of the American University of Cairo or Beirut. Read through PMW. Read MEMRI. The venom is mostly funded by American and European tax-payers who think if the Arabs are busy killing the Jews, they wont come after us. Big Mistake. The Jews are only the snack, the forespeizer, the appetiser. The meal is the West.

Think I use hyperbole? Look at 60 years of UNWRA and see how much rehab was done for 650,000 refugees with four times the Marshall Plan per capita. None. So now they claim to be 4 million, or 10. Now go and placate them with more funds. Bravo, kudos for powers of extrapolation.
