wrong on all counts

Reader comment on item: The Palestinian Economy in Shambles
in response to reader comment: ECONOMIC PROSPERITY CAN BE ACHIEVED ON CONDITION OF PERMANENT PEACE AND STATEHOOD.

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Jan 1, 2008 at 01:16

Economic prosperity is unrelated to peace and stability. Evidence in point is that Israel's economy leapfrogged following the six-day campaign back in 1967. It has achieved the longest exapnsion during this 5 year bout of terror campaign against Israel, the stock market rising by 270% and still undervalued by many accounts.

The best way to assure Palestinian poverty is to encourage Palestinian statehood. Gaza is case in point. It is hong-kong size, but as opposed to Hong-Kong as one can get. It is not statehood. It is state of mind. The Palestinian state of mind is single-minded : The liquidation of the Jewish State.
