I’d say, you’d need around $7.4 billion, or thereabouts. And quite honestly, I’m not too far off the mark. Yesterday, 87 countries and international organizations pledged at a one-day conference in Paris $7.4 billion in aid to palestinian Arabs who live on land they stole from Israel during their 100 year-long war against the Jewish people. The United States pledged $555 million for 2008, up from $75 million this year. The European Union, the largest aid donor to the palestinians, pledged $650 million for 2008. Separately, European nations made three-year pledges, including France and Sweden at $300 million each, Britain $500 million, Norway $420 million, Spain $360 million and Germany $200 million.
I don’t think that 87 countries ever, anywhere, pledged that much money to those who were starving in Biafra – which actually did exist for around one and a half years – unlikfe the manufactured nation of palestine which never existed – ever. Or to the Indonesians who suffered tremedous losses during the tsunami. Or to the Turks or Mexicans who suffered during their catastrophic earthquakes. We must divest from those countries mentioned as donors above. We must ask our financial advisors and our fund managers which countries our international stocks and money market funds are invested in – and divest from those terror-funding nations and states.
Here is a list of companies that do business with state sponsors of terrorism or investment funds that invest in those companies, from the Divest Terror Initiative. Click here for Facts About Terror-Free Investing:

We must divest from the entity calling itself palestine and in order to preserve the Zionist-Jewish character of the legitimate and sovereign nation of Israel, Israel must also divest herself from the insidious Arab populations that contaminate her from within.
We must divest from the entity calling itself palestine all financial holdings until the entity calling itself palestine ends its system of systematic genocide against the Jewish people of Israel.
It is high time to deconstruct the myths of palestinian victimhood and start constructing the truths about palestinian aggression and genocide against the Jewish people.
