Suckers, fools, frei'erim, suicidal masochists... which label do you prefer for a country that financially supports its greatest enemies?
After the Obama visitation, the news that Prime Minister Netanyahu decided to release the withheld funds as a goodwill gesture to the Palestinian Authority. The fact is that the "PA" owes Israel money and we should just take what is owed to us.
Israel currently supplies all electricity needs to the West Bank. Palestinian customers receive the electricity through the Palestinian Authority and the Jerusalem District Electricity Company Ltd., each of which operate in different cities in the territories. The two entities' aggregate debt to IEC currently totals NIS 730 million (US$ 197.2 million debt) . Each month, IEC sends a warning letter about the debt, and it is in talks with the Palestinian Authority and the Jerusalem District Electricity Company, but no agreement has been reached on payment… Mystical Paths
If I'm not mistaken they also owe us for medical care and lots of other "services" that we ordinary Israelis must cover ourselves. Why should we pay our enemies?
After the UN vote in November 2012, the PA built a monument in a central square in Bethlehem called "The State Monument," which shows the "State of Palestine." However, the model of "Palestine" also includes all of Israel, thereby erasing it completely. The monument celebrates the UN vote on statehood as well as the first PLO/Fatah terror attack against Israel in 1965, which is seen as the beginning of the Palestinian "revolution" and Fatah's anniversary date. The words on the map-shaped monument are:
"Birth certificate of the State of Palestine - Nov. 29, 2012,
The outbreak of the glorious revolution - Jan. 1, 1965" PMW
Have the Arabs ever done any "goodwill gestures" to us? Nu? If you can list them, I'd appreciate if you'd add them in the comments, thanks.
