#1 In other words if we don't pay up they will do what they are going to do anyway.

(only we won't be paying for it).

#2 "This dramatically reduced contribution results in the most severe funding crisis in the history of the agency."

I's really gonna hamper their efforts at providing those 'schools and medical care' services, isn't it?

#3 He added, "stability in the Middle East is what we are talking about and the potential impact of UNRWA being destabilised is very likely to be widespread, profound, unpredictable and catastrophic."

Eh... What stability in the Middle East? Is there some stability to be made unstable somewhere?

#6 Considering they will just blow it on terrorists anyway... I'd rather just keep it and let Israel take care of them with their typical tender, sweet and tender methods.

#15 Oh yes, my East Texas piney woods brethren in Palestine TX would welcome them with open the next Baptist Church potluck dinner.

Maybe because the odds are that just about anyone that can walk has a firearm on their person...I am certain the Palestinians would find themselves with kindred spirts, or at least with regards to having firearms.

I will assure you that gun sex is not smiled upon in Texas. We fought at the Alamo over that stuff.

And so what is so bad about being...umm...Texans?
