Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
It is absolutely self destructive is indicative of a major problem. If Fayyad truly wants to create a Palestinian economy he needs to give Palestinians who work in the settlements a reason to quit by offering jobs. Promises of this do not feed and clothe people. And please do not give me the excuse that Israel is preventing these jobs from being created, that is irrelevant. Excuses and justifications are not replacements for employment. In addition, this will do little to hurt the settlements, any needed labor can be drawn from Israelis at a slightly higher cost, or imported from Asia. The Palestinians, as always, will be the ones who will lose.
