This must be the feeblest excuse yet for trying to stall Palestinian Statehood! Almost ALL countries in the world depend on some form of foreign aid - Israel included - and this report (note: the report was prepared by Avigdor Lieberman's Foreign Ministry and other ministries toeing Netanyahu's line) and is in direct contradiction to last year's World bank report: "This message stands out in light of the World Bank's report and other reports by international bodies that were published in 2011 in preparation for the Palestinian UN statehood bid last September, that claimed the PA's institutions are developed enough to support an independent state. " Let us hope that the donors in Brussels will be perceptive enough to view this report as what it is: an attempt to place further stumbling-blocks on the road to Palestinian Statehood.
