Where are the strings?

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Don't Deserve Additional Aid

Submitted by Greg (United States), Dec 21, 2004 at 12:11

When certain parents promise continued financial support to their struggling, "not-able-to-support-themselves-yet" children, there are strings attached -- such as the children agreeing to continue their education, stay off of drugs, out of trouble etc. Abiding by the terms agreed upon, support is maintained. It is more than obvious to even the casual observer, that the current financial support is enabling evil and destructive behavior. If the Palestinians in those territories are to continue receiving aid, there need to be strings attached. Furthermore, on the side of the aid suppliers, there needs to be detailed accounting on exactly how the monies are being used. The sleeping masses should wake up and see what's really happening over there.
