Sucking them dry

The Gaza "disengagement" is nearly over - a media circus created by Israel for maximum world attention and trauma - and already the Jewish state is asking for more money. US$2.2 billion, to be precise.

Israel's ambassador in Washington, Daniel Ayalon, said he hoped America would be generous and support the development of Galilee and Negev. His chutzpah knows no bounds. "This would be a strong political message from the United States...for what we are doing. Israel is a cornerstone for stability in the Middle East", he said.

Washington has offered the Palestinians around US$240 million in its 2006 budget.

$240 million buys a lot of bomb belts, ammo, and honor killings.

Thanks Daniel Pipes. So glad you're reading my blog. Keep it up. We need more of your bigotry here...

US$3 billion plus a year buys a good many helicopter gun ships, missiles, jets, bulldozers, etc.
Then there's the cost of the Wall alone, that great contribution to human civilisation.
Israel is a parasite nation.
Builds character. Though what sort of character?

The article wasn't by Pipes, Ant. Interesting, your reaction to mention of honour killings.

Israel is a parasite nation.

Gosh that sounds familiar. Reminiscent of statements made well before 1948.

Honour killings is wrong, come on.
Look, to condemn an entire people because of a few extremists is ludicrous.
Israel as a parasite nation? I wouldn't use such words, for the record, despite my strong objection to the Jewish state in its current form...
