The hand in the till

The Independent reports on yet more grim news for the Palestinians:

"Millions of pounds donated by British and other European charities to help the Palestinian poor were unwittingly diverted to fund terror and support the families of suicide bombers, Israeli prosecutors claimed yesterday."

Resistance is one thing but outright deception is another.

Of course, with a terrorist 'state' like Palestine, with the principle that 'all money is fungible', it's to be expected.

If someone PayPal'ed you $20 and said "Anty, I'd like you to go have sushi for lunch, but my money can't be spent on burgers," and that money went into your general account, well, whose to say whether that $20 was spent on sushi today or a burger tomorrow?

Terrorist state like Palestine? Is Indonesia a terrorist state? It redirects money in all directions. A receoint intervoew with teh former Indonesian presindet revealed that the money from the US meant ot fight "terrorism" is going into teh pockets of teh military generals, who in turn are motivated to see to it that more "terrorism" occurs.

Well, Indonesia's raison d'etre isn't terrorism in the same way that it is for the Palestinian Authority, but yeah, there are a LOT of very disturbing things that I hear out of Indonesia, the story you reference being just one of them.

Just like addamo to excuse the money paid to palestinians to murder jewish children. And he denies that he's an antisemite.

A.L., if you post items such as this one you'll endanger your status as an anti-semite. Please try to be more biased in future.

Actually, just to go back and parse this, Anty writes:

Resistance is one thing but outright deception is another.

What it sounds like is that Anty supports money going, in the word of the Independent, to "fund terror and support the families of suicide bombers" - so long as the money is given freely.

Yes Shab you are right abto Indonesia, but the Indonesians are hardly an oppressed and victimised people the way the Palestinians are.

So in many ways, it could be argued that the conduct of the Indonesians military is even more sinister.

Not more sinister than what passes for palestinian militants.

I disagree. The Indoensian military is a law unto itself that continues to be armed by the US/UK, which they continue to consuct open genocide and enthnic cleansing.

I doub the US and the UK are lining up to fund the Palesitinia miliants.

And the Palestinian terrorists in Fatah, Islamic jihad, Hamas, are a law unto themselves.

And they openly attempt genocide, but are often foiled, not because of lack of desire.
