Would that have anything to do with the rampant corruption in Hezbollah? Of the forcing of Palestinians not to work for Jews or a Jewish company? Or the amount of weapons purchased to abuse their own people and kill Jews?

Arafat died owning 6 luxury hotels and with millions in the bank stolen from the people he was supposed to manage the money for. His wife and daughter fled because they knew that they would be asked to hand it over to the incumbant so that he could be wealthy and not for the benefit of the people from whom it was stolen.

And they will continue to blame Israel as does the rest of the world and not the thieves themselves.

Why would that be, we wonder. The West Bank and Gaza Strip receive one of the HIGHEST levels of International aid in the World. So where does it go? It certainly is not being spent on what it was intended for - medical, education, - it is spent on armaments and used by their corrupt Government to enhance their extravagant life styles. They do NOT CARE for their people. Thanks Cal.

Germany has offered to build a port on the shores of Gaza Strip. The Israelis refuse to allow it. There is more foreign aid available if the government of Israel would allow it to reach the people of Palestine.
