#1 Here's an idea: Do what everyone else does when they need money - WORK FOR IT.

(They could be selling fruits and vegetables right now for some income if they hadn't trashed the greenhouses the Israelis left them....)

Tap-tap. Nope, my Sympathy Meter™ is still pegged at minus 10 where these clowns are concerned.

#2 It's funny how Palestinian terrorism ratcheted up after a Palestinian government was put in place that suddenly was able to get a hold of hundreds of millions in foreign aid every year. Terrorism can't flourish without big subsidies. It's time we cut those subsidies off.

#3 Hamas hasn't been getting much of the money; it is going to the Fatah controlled bureaucracy. And Israel says that Fatah has a 10 to 1 advantage in weapons over Hamas. That is why Israel released $70,000,000 in tax receipt entitlements to the PA last month. Ironically, Fatah could use the security agreements that they repeatedly violated, as a means to jail Hamas leaders. Fortunately, Arafat can't enjoy this circus.

#4 But he says that no one from Hamas, including the prime minister-designate, Ismail Haniya, has talked to him since the election.

That, in itself, should be a message. But I think this guy is a bit too dense to get it.

#5 In the last two weeks, the Palestinian Authority has been given about $70 million - more than $40 million released by the World Bank, nearly $21 million from the European Union and $10 million from Norway.

Hope we can return the favor one day.

#7 EG1772---Iran funds the fundo paramilitary units. It's their gig. why not leave the funding of civil government and infrastructure to the marks from the World Bank, EU, and Norway. That stuff is not sexy enough in the eyes of the M²s. Boring boring.

#8 $55 million a month could buy a pretty fair musical. Found a new industry, employ out of work singers and waiters, annoy the bomb-tops and do it with the poor pali peoples money. What more do you want?
