Palestinians Don't Deserve Additional Aid

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

Submitted by Menahem Dunsky (Canada), Dec 22, 2004 at 10:27

To Mr. Pipes, and All of his Readers,
I find that the corrupt PA is receiving far too much alleged "Aid". One would have thought that with Arafat's dying as a pig would die; (French: Crever), that things might improve.

But No! "Things" seem to have gone from bad to worse, as Mr. Pipes himself wrote:

"Aid-wise, residents of the West Bank and Gaza have hardly been neglected until now. They receive about $300 per person, making them, per capita, the world's greatest beneficiaries of foreign aid. Strangely, their efforts to destroy Israel have not inspired efforts to crush this hideous ambition but rather to subsidize it. Money being fungible, foreign aid effectively funds the Palestinian Arabs, bellicose propaganda machine, their arsenal, their army, and their suicide bombers."
