“Palestinians Expect Large Aid Package”
April 8, 2004
“Palestinians Expect Large Aid Package.” So reads an Associated Press title today that reaches new heights of insolence. The Palestinians routinely burn American flags and effigies of George W. Bush, they frequently kill Americans and threaten to do so again. Now we read that, in the event of an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, Nabil Shaath of the Palestinian Authority expects that “the Americans should be ready with the World Bank and other donors to make massive economic support for the Palestinian Authority.” He did not specify a sum but one can expect that “massive” means tens of billions of U.S. dollars. Shaath announced that these funds are needed for “relief, reconstruction, economic activities, labor and job creation, and others.”
