If Israel is pumping financial resources into the PA there must be something in it for Israel. Is this not the land that has been decrying the 'welfare' received by the welfare state that is the PA from Arab countries and the UN? Is this not the Israel that has made a f'lektarn' pattern out of arab holdings in what once was the west bank? It this not the sponsor of all the settlement building, farm destruction and water stealing? And Netanyshu has the gall to add a statement that there's a "libel" in what Abbas says? Nit the 'blood libel' however, just another 'ordinary' libel. The wisest thing Abbas could do is step down and let the Palestinians elect a president Netanyahu really can't stand. Otherwise, the PA and Arab palestine are history.
