File under: Palestinian Authority
#1 The answer is simple. Instead of relying on the Israeli Shekel, Palestine should, as a newly minted UN state have its own currency. Then Palestine can run its printing presses 24/7 and they will never be short again. Print to eternity I say.
And Allan knows best.

#2 Qatar's ruler, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, pledged $400 million to help develop Gazoo during a visit there in October.
Rumor is that this was a 'thank you' to Hamas for abandoning Assad. Of course this is a pledge so the money will be dribbled out slowly.

#3 they already tried faking that once, tipper. they claimed there was a "palestinian pound" as a way of legitimizing their history.
#4 IOW, will Qatar, etc. end up paying Egypt US$400.00 Milyuhn since Gaza is Egyptian territory, + Cairo has not + is NOT willing to hand it over to the Paleos likely for a long long while yet - DITTO AS PER JORDAN + WEST BANK???
"PA" = NATIONAL/SOVEREIGN PALEO GOVT WID NO PHYSICAL NATION = ACTUAL TERRITORY TO CALL ITS OWN.
